Community College Architecture.
Frendahl, Bruce
While early community colleges were often located in abandoned high schools or hospitals, or in shared facilities with public schools, they have now come into their own, often in imaginative and innovative facilities. Community college design offers an opportunity for development of an environment that is complementary to the larger environment of which the college is an integral part. Actual practice has not always resulted in such environmental harmony. Yet, several colleges of design excellence can be noted, including Foothill College in California, Allegheny College in Pittsburgh, Miami-Dade College in Florida, Seward County College in Kansas, Pima College in Arizona, and Mount Vernon College in Washington, D. C. It appears that the future of the community college, in terms of design, will be closely associated with the concepts of flexibility and adaptability. The community college campus has always been changing and must continue to change in order to reflect new programs, ideas, and lifestyles of its students and the community. (Author/JDS)
