Product Description

Review

"Evidence–Based Design of Elementary and Secondary Schools is a book written for design professionals that link research based on principles to theories, methods, and best practices for learning space design." ( The Journal Resources Site Map/Children, Youth Environment, Spring 2012)

From the Back Cover

An in–depth, evidence–based design approach to the design of elementary and secondary schools

The contemporary school must be a vibrant, living extension of its community. Evidence–Based Design of Elementary and Secondary Schools instructs design professionals on how to successfully achieve this goal. With assistance from research–intensive principles grounded in theories, concepts, and research methodologies―and with roots in the behavioral sciences―this book examines and provides strategies for pooling streams of information to establish a holistic design approach that is responsive to the changing needs of educators and their students. This book:

  • Delivers an overview of the current research and learning theories in education, and how they apply to contemporary school design

  • Explores the history of school design in the United States

  • Examines the role of information technology in education

  • Includes case studies of more than twenty exemplary school designs, based on research of the best physical environments for learning and education

  • Considers what learning environments may be in the near future

Evidence–Based Design of Elementary and Secondary Schools analyzes the current shift toward a modern architectural paradigm that balances physical beauty, and social awareness, and building technologies with functionality to create buildings that optimize the educational experience for all learners. Enlightening as well as informative, this forward–thinking guide provides educational facility planners, designers, and architects with the tools they need to confidently approach their next school building project. In addition, this guide provides administrators, educators, and researchers with design options for rethinking and creating innovative learning environments.

Format: Hardcover
A very thorough and scholarly analysis of the current generation of american school design. A very informative piece of work, only let down by too few coulored images and the quality of some of the drawings included which are essentially produced by theindividual designers themselves. Some excellent new projects to those from outside the USA and generally well worth acquiring for anyone working in or studing the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for new or re-designed schools 13 April 2012
By Robert Spellman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have advised on new school design and the upgrade of existing schools and this has become the book I recommend to anyone I am working with to understand the design process of a school.

The school leader wants to have read this book before the process begins because you can see a wealth of things, even on the tightest budget, that can improve learning.

4.0 out of 5 stars A ground-breaking book 2 Jun. 2013
By Sean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Lippman's approach to design should change the way we look at school design forever. His methods for viewing and engaging in school design are unique and helpful. I only wish he had presented more "evidence" for a book with a title beginning with that word.
