Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0070024685, Hardcover)

This first volume in the "Architectural Records Portfolios" series examines award-winning educational facilities. It draws upon projects featured in "Architectural Record" magazine, as well as including entirely new material, and is the first major sourcebook on the design and construction of public schools in over a decade. Topics include: the evolution of school architecture in America; profiles of the best designed schools of the last decade; design tips for accommodating computers and audio/visual equipment; choosing furniture and equipment to meet program needs; new trends in building types; and guides to long-range facilities planning. Enhanced by hundreds of photographs, many full-colour, this book is a complete illustrated history of educational facilities from the 1700s to the present, as well as a practical hand-book of ideas and information. It should be a useful reference for architects and school planners who must keep up to date on design trends and philosophies in one of the most prolific areas of new construction - public schools.
