The Design of Workshops for Asian Second Level Schools. Study 5.
Khan, Khurshid A.; Vickery, D. J.
The utilization of workshop accomodations in the countries of the Asian Region are examined and the study concludes that, in most schools, a single multipurpose workshop is more economical than the separate workshops for separate crafts that are in common use at present. Design criteria are developed for multipurpose "industrial arts" workshops that include woodwork, metalwork, electrical work, motor mechanics, textiles, ceramics, and so forth, indicating the effect of course content on space provision. The problem is approached of how design, while not duplicating but reflecting the atmosphere of a good modern industrial plant, would provide for the exploration of industrial knowledge and methods. Chapters suggest ways in which the general purpose or multifield laboratory can accept a variety of arrangements for teaching and learning in relation to some of the curricula current in the Asian Region. Included are the layout of equipment, design of seating, thermal comfort, noise and visual environment, work areas (individual and group demonstration), storage, and toilet and lavatory facilities.
