Bricks and Mortarboards. A Report on College Planning and Building.

Web Abstract: 
Presents discussions on the current status of the college classroom, laboratory, library, dormitory, and campus planning. Chapters by various authors emphasize that the new classroom buildings and lecture halls should enable fewer teachers to teach more students, which can be achieved only in large teaching areas or in small areas linked electronically; emphasize flexibility that can be attained by nonpermanent partitions and exposed, well-mounted utility feed lines; discuss problems libraries face in housing ever-expanding collections and accommodating the new technologies that have become part of the modern library; report on house plan, core plans, and other arrangements which provide more pleasant physical surroundings and further educational objectives by providing live or electronic aids to learning, and focus on theaters, museums, recital halls, health centers, college unions, and research facilities.
