Looks back at the designs of school buildings of the recent past, identifying trends in energy consumption, ventilation, heating, air quality, lighting, and acoustics. Sections include: Safety, Permanence and Endurance--School Building Prior to 1930; The Progressive Era (1930-1945); Post-war Boom (1945-1960); The Impulsive Period (1960-1980); Declines of the 1980s and the New Movements of the 1990s and 2000s; 21st Century School Environments: What does the future hold?

p.9   It was also during this time in the 1930s that growing
attention was focusing on the need to standardize school
facility management and construction. This decade saw
the creation of the National Council on Schoolhouse
Construction which would become today’s Council of
Educational Facility Planners International, a trade group
for those who design and maintain school buildings. The
1930s also produced interest in the psychological effects
of school buildings, as open plan school designs
were focusing more on the importance of child-centered
design.   Added by: Marie Musset
p.25   As a side note, Europe, Australia, and a handful of
developed countries have made some signifi cant progress
in recent decades in realizing a more progressive
vision for 21st century school buildings. Some wonderful
examples can be seen in the “Sustainable Schools”
report from the Department for Education and Skills in the
United Kingdom, or from the database of excellent school
facilities available from the OECDs Centre for Effective
Learning Environments. There are a number of reasons
why the US has not attained as high of levels of innovation
achieved in these countries (one major reason is
funding policy), but we are fortunate to have these inspirational
examples from other places to help move school
design forward in the US in coming years.   Added by: Marie Musset
