The “Temporary” Facilities Syndrome

Journal Cover
From Volume 1 Number 1 | August 1972
By David S. Haviland

Temporary facilities are commonplace on the American campus and have been for many years. To determine the nature of such facilities in use or being added by colleges and universities, the American Institute of Architects' Committee on Architecture for Education, the American Association of Junior Colleges, and the Association of University Architects in 1970 conducted a survey of the phenomenon. An analysis of the results, supported by the Council of Educational Facility Planners, Educational Facilities Laboratories, and SCUP, as well as by AIA and AAJC, was conducted by David S. Haviland, associate professor and director, Center for Architectural Research, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. This article is adapted from Mr. Haviland's analysis of 160 responses to the survey questionaire (50 of which reported no use of temporary facilities).
