The Design of Polytechnic Institute Buildings.
Mills, Edward D.; Kaylor, Harry
Guidelines for the choice of site, layout, and design of polytechnic institutes at the post-secondary level are presented in this UNESCO manual issued in 1972. The purpose is to provide information for use in the erection of functionally appropriate and economically viable buildings. The manual is composed of eight chapters, mostly relating to design principles and standards. The first chapter is concerned with educational programs and their influences on building design. The remaining chapters are related to polytechnic institute sites, basic design and accommodation considerations, details of space allocation, environmental requirements, building flexibility, natural and climatic conditions, material selection, equipment arrangement, and impact of design and management on building economics. Type plans or designs are provided in the manual for use as examples for study, but not specimens to copy. Included are layout plans and illustrations for explanation purposes. (CC)
