Building for School and Community. IV: England, Australia. Programme on Educational Building.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
Projects that aim at meeting the educational needs of a community and also at creating a framework within which the overall social needs of the community can be taken into account have been the subject of detailed case studies, each devoted to a given country. In addition, these individual studies have served as a basis for a further analysis aimed at identifying common problems and at proposing strategies for action. The texts brought together in the present volume concern England and Australia. Three reports are devoted to the English experience. The first, "Facilities for Education and Other Public Purposes in England and Wales," constitutes a substantive introduction that examines, among other things, the different forms that facilities coordination takes in England. Two particular cases are then described. The first, "Yateley School and Community Centre," reflects a situation frequently encountered in which coordination develops empirically with the facilities and the use made of them. The second, "Crewe Central Area Project," illustrates a new approach to coordination in the form of a network of facilities combining old and new buildings as part of the renovation of an old town center. The descriptive paper "Recent Developments in Australia" describes the present situation regarding coordination of school and community facilities, then gives some specific examples. (Author/MLF)
