Site Development Goals for City Schools. A Report.
Dee, Richard, Ed.
A conscious regard for the appropriateness of certain facilities should be fundamental in the design process of the city school site. There, within an extremely tight piece of real estate, a great many things must take place with not always room enough for all events. In addition to the requirement for program priorities and efficient use of space, the city school site is also responding to its requirement of being a part of community life. The urban school site is extending itself into the community by lending itself to community use. Meeting rooms, headquarters space for volunteer groups, and shared resource facilities and outside spaces are being developed with greater participation of the community in mind. Furthermore, the space around a city school is now recognized as an excellent educational opportunity to display the balance between man and his environment. School sites are locations where students can gain a greater understanding of the myriad processes and functions that are interwoven into the urban fabric, and their possible effects on the viability of the urban dweller.
