School Building Design Asia.
Asian Regional Inst. for School Building Research, Colombo (Sri Lanka).
Guidelines are presented for the design, costs, and use of primary and secondary general schools in the 18 countries comprising the Asian region served by UNESCO. Because of the great diversity in climate, building design and construction skills, and resources in these countries, the generalizations about school building design and furniture should be evaluated individually by each country. The materials included are intended to be of use to planners, architects, school building designers, principals, and teachers. Those chapters dealing with the size of the school and ways of scheduling towards maximum utilization of teaching spaces will be of interest to administrators. On the other hand, those chapters devoted to the design of individual spaces will have more appeal for teachers. The book reports in great part on those developments already undertaken, with costs and evaluation included. (Photographs and the illumination grids in back cover pocket may reproduce poorly.)
