Campus Architecture: Building in the Groves of Academe.
Dober, Richard P.
This book describes, defines, and documents campus architectural designs, covering all aspects of campus building and landscape planning in light of today's new challenges--from the updating and revitalization of the existing architectural heritage to the kinds of innovative new buildings required to meet today's and tomorrow's academic needs. The book's subjects include how computerized libraries, changing physical education and recreational needs, and new alternative campus housing affect design; techniques of design rehabilitation, repair, and renovation of existing campuses; design strategies for instructional buildings, research facilities, libraries and information centers, sports facilities, and campus housing; advice for integrating environmental, conservation, and aesthetic considerations within the same project; and how to provide long-term durability and economy in operations and meet project and construction budget targets. Further, the book presents fully illustrated case studies of the best in recent campus designs and redesigns, along with in-depth analyses of why these facilities work so well and how they achieve their goals.
