Designing Spaces That Make a Difference
From Volume 41 Number 1 | October–December 2012
Change to longstanding, centralized campus facilities can support civic goals and the development of community. Significant resistance to such change may come from campus leadership.
From the Founding to the Future of Five Ivy League Campuses
This project examines the evolution of the campuses of Harvard, Yale, Penn, Princeton, and Columbia (collectively referred to in this study as “the Five”) from their founding, through the centuries of their development, and into the future to better understand how academic and other forces gave form to the buildings and grounds and how historical outcomes may inform future growth.
Environmental Behavior Research and the Design of Learning Spaces
Designers and clients, whether in education or the corporate world, will each enjoy the way existing environmental/behavior research can be applied to the thoughtful consideration of these archetypes, either standing alone or used in combinations to create rich, interactive learning spaces.
This book shows how a campus is defined through its physical image—buildings and landscapes are designed to communicate the institution's purpose, presence and domain as well as generate an image charged with symbolism.
