New Places for the Arts. A Report.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
This catalogue of facilities and centers built specifically for the arts within the last decade dramatizes the commitment to facilities made by arts organizations and agencies all over the country--a commitment that is having a significant impact on the quality of life and the physical environment of many neighborhoods and urban centers. The purpose of the catalogue is to gather basic information on 49 new arts facilities as a resource for arts organizations and planners interested in similar kinds of facilities. Photographs and a floor plan, a brief listing of the major spaces provided, the cost, area, and date completed describe each building. Architects and other consultants responsible for design of the facility are also given. The buildings have been divided into three categories: museums, performing arts, and arts centers. For each type, a wide variety of examples was sought--in size, geographic distribution, function, and architectural style. (Author/MLF)
