New Concepts in Planning and Funding Athletic, Physical Education, and Recreational Facilities.
Bronzan, Robert T.
The major purpose of this book is to provide information needed to plan, design, equip, and finance a sports-related facility. Planning and financing are discussed and guidelines offered for securing and compiling data for analysis in justifying new facilities. Other chapters discuss determining facility needs and eventual plans, selection of the architect, program objectives, and the interrelationships of philosophies, policies, programs, and facilities. Checklists and specifications cover the principles and concepts of planning (1) indoor facilities, (2) a sports arena and special events center, and (3) outdoor activity areas. Criteria are offered for the visual, thermal, atmospheric, and sonic environment, and information is provided about synthetic surfacing materials. Several examples of the use of modern technology to meet current facility needs are selected to demonstrate versatility in design concepts and functional uses. Appendixes contain checklists for planning indoor facilities, natatoriums, stadiums, and highlights of specifications for making facilities accessible for the physically handicapped. An index is also included. (MLF)
