Building Implications of the Multi-Option School. Programme on Educational Building No. 2.
This publication is the second in a series of reports on educational buildings. This report deals with the multioption school, a special type of secondary school designed to offer a broad choice of educational options and activities in response to changing educational and social needs. The report analyzes problems raised by the design and construction of multioption schools and discusses the process of transforming theoretical models into practical buildings and equipment. The analysis emphasizes the need to base design projects and the briefing process on a study of the school's functions. In addition, the author examines ways to reconcile educational needs and various constraints through interdisciplinary cooperation, research and development, and teacher participation. Contained in the report are five case studies, which include plans, diagrams, and photographs of new school projects in Canada, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. (Author/JG)
