Planning for Interdisciplinary Integration

Increasingly, institutions are constructing unified science centers -- the physical counterpart of multidisciplinary curricula.

From Volume 29 Number 1 | Fall 2000

Abstract: While it was once common to find separate buildings dedicated to the study and research of chemistry, biology, physics, and the earth sciences, there is a current movement in college and university settings toward unifying the science disciplines in one building or complex. This article addresses, in detail, this trend toward unification by discussing the driving forces behind the trend, the benefits of integrated science facilities, the challenges of the planning and design process, and the intricacies of the design approach.

Development of a Statewide Space Model

The dynamics of using a space model for long-term planning, regulation of new construction, and appropriation funding.

From Volume 29 Number 1 | Fall 2000

Abstract: In 1998, the Texas legislature wanted to change the health-related institutions’ appropriations method to formula funding using the 1992 space model. Many legislators questioned the accuracy and validity of this model due to large predictions of unmet space needs. At the request of the Senate Committee on Finance, the commissioner of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board appointed an Advisory Committee consisting of representatives from all 11 Texas health-related institutions to review the 1992 model. This article describes the consensus environment and process that fostered the development of the January 1999 compromise space model.
