Physical Recreation Facilities. A Report.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
New goals in physical education are leading instructors to seek new kinds of athletic facilities. School administrators are in the process of rethinking the classical facilities, i.e., the box-shaped gymnasium -- facilities designed without sensitivity to the students' desire to participate in the games they can continue to play after graduation. This new thinking also includes the design of facilities oriented to the female need to have a place for body exercise. This report seeks to display the various current forms and shapes of facilities designed for physical education, interscholastic and intercollegiate sports, and recreation. Although it does not advocate any general solution for everyone, the report displays the more imaginative and economically prudent solutions that have been built or proposed for specific settings.
