Designing the University of the Future
Hashimshony, Rifca; Haina, Jacov
Planning for Higher Education, v34 n2 p5-19 2006
This article focuses on the future physical layout of the university in view of the profound social and cultural changes of our time that are affecting the structure of higher education in general and universities in particular. We suggest that the basic architectural prototypes of university design should be re-examined in view of these changes. The main issues related to the characteristics of contemporary (current) society are identified, and their implications on the institutional and spatial structure of the university are analyzed. The article concludes with a methodological generation of alternative scenarios for the physical structure of the university of the future. (Contains 6 figures and 5 notes.)
