Encapsulated Campus: Better Buildings for Fewer Bucks.
Shear, George E.
Too often building facilities use yesterday's materials and methods to solve yeaterday's educational problems. The solution is to use newly available technologies to build facilities that will respond to changing patterns in education and reduce the frustrating amounts of time and money lavished on each project. The most important consideration today in planning educational spaces is that their structure, form, and content should provide the greatest latitude for future evolution and change -- an environment rather than a building -- a structural/mechanical enclosure that has an educational landscape within. The true designers of such an educational environment will be those who are to teach and learn within it. (Author)
