Comprehensive Bibliography on Child Care and Preschool Design. Architecture for Education.
Moore, Gary T., Comp.
Excellence in design of child care and other preschool facilities is an emerging issue in the architectural profession. This bibliography is intended to aid architects and other designers, child-care directors, policy makers, and researchers to locate the most up-to-date and best sources of design-relevant information. The bibliography is based on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Center for Architecture and Urban Planning Research database and collection of resources, which covers 15 years of research and amassed consulting services on child care center design. The database was supplemented by a call for bibliographic entries sent to members of the American Institute of Architects Committee on Architecture for Education and people involved in child care research and design. The recommended references came from Canada, Israel, Japan and the United States. The bibliography is not annotated and is not categorized. Entries include research, design examples, and other published papers and articles on the design of child care and other preschool facilities. Some topics addressed include outdoor settings, ecology, playground construction, children and space, day care centers, therapeutic environments, design patterns, child care centers, crowding, play equipment, special education facilities, and toy structure.
