This book suggests ways and means by which the development of campuses can be controlled so that functional goals can be aesthetically expressed. The first section, "Prospectus," defines campus planning, illuminating through historical examples the evolution of the campus as a design form, and describes the conditions that make campus planning so critical an activity. Section 2, "The Campus and Its Parts," breaks down the campus into its constituent physical parts and describes each in functional and aesthetic terms. These chapters describe steps that can be taken in programming and designing the various facilities that make up the whole. Section 3, "Campus Plans," indicates in detail the steps and procedures that have to be covered in preparing campus plans. The section contains illustrations showing how old campuses can be expanded and new campuses developed. The book contains numerous bird's eye structural photographs, architectural sketches, institutional design plans, and floor plans. (SLD)
