Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Programme on Educational Building.
This document examines 55 educational facilities throughout the world whose quality designs were deemed instrumental in providing an environment for a quality educational process to emerge. Each entry provides facility statistics such as number of students, the facility's age and type, and name of the architectural firm responsible for its design. Included are several photos, floor plans (where available), and a brief description of the school. The book is divided into designs for improving existing facilities, schools of the future, tertiary facilities, and designs whose innovative approaches can aid facility management. Appendices contain information on the basic education program for schools of Turkey (this project did not meet the criteria for inclusion in the main section of this publication but, according to a note, was deemed worthy of inclusion), an address list of schools featured, and an address list of the architectural firms.
