Indoor Recreational Places as Glazed Space.
Cold, Birgit
This paper describes how creation of a varied, imaginative, and cultivated environment can recreate the pleasure of learning. The development of an indoor-outdoor, public-private, and half-climatized glazed (glass covered) space at the University of Dragvoll in Trondheim, Norway, is described. Well-planned glazed spaces can increase social contact, serve various functions, provide stimulation, and be economically profitable. Considerations such as street design, daylight, view, acoustics, indoor climate, and plants are discussed. A quality glazed space should supplement urban space; include public, social, and commercial functions along the covered street; and contain communication areas near or within the glass-covered space. Four figures and seven drawings are included. (LMI)
