New Schools for New York. Plans and Precedents for Small Schools.
Public Education Association, New York, NY.; Architectural League of New York.
This study illustrates with specific designs how the city might meet two critical educational objectives in its first program of new school construction in many years. The study designs show how New York might build schools small enough to meet criteria for effective learning environments and how these small schools might be closely integrated with their communities. Following an introduction by Rosalie Genevro, two essays discuss the aims and implementation of this study: "Advocacy and Architecture" by Jeanne Silver Frankl and "The New Small Schools for New York Design Study" by Rosalie Genevro. The six neighborhood architectural and educational programs developed through the study are then profiled and amply illustrated. A final essay, "Building and Learning," by Anne E. Riselbach, expands the analysis of the development of school design in New York City. Drawings and texts are the result of exploration by 50 teams of architects, credited with their drawings. Contains 138 references. (SLD)
