Recycling School Facilities. Summary of a Conference (Andover, Massachusetts, March 8, 1974).
Clarke, Stephen J.
This conference report is divided into two main sections: one covering the team planning approach to remodeling and constructing school facilities; the other reviewing the idea of deliberate planning for functional school use. A public school superintendent, a sociologist, and four architects shared their experiences with the conference participants. Topics included the redesign of an entire school district whose facilities had been allowed to deteriorate and become outmoded over the past decades, the restoration of two old and abandoned high schools in a large urban area in New England, the continuous planning for refurbishing aging school buildings in the nation's capital, the prevention of school vandalism by intelligent design to accommodate nonmalicious vandalism and rough play, and some examples of how informed and careful planning can recapture from threatened decay and disuse certain types of noneducational structures for school use.
