A Systems Approach to the Practice of Architecture. BSIC/EFL Newsletter.
Building Systems Information Clearinghouse, Menlo Park, CA.
The main article in this newsletter concerns the adoption by an architectural firm of elements of a systems approach as a means of providing school buildings responsive spatially and environmentally to educational change, and how these activities were later instrumental in facilitating entry by the architectural firm into the construction management field. The pros and cons of construction management and building systems for client, contractors, and architect are cited. Included are photographs, building plans, and specifications of four schools completed or in progress. (Author/MLF)
