A series of seven talks
5—Quantity and Quality in School Design
by Michael Smith
More technical and planning experiments have taken place in recent school building than in most other fields of British architecture; but, while the quality and fitness of schools have been greatly improved, numbers have barely kept pace with demand.
Michael Smith, who has been concerned with school design for several local authorities and for the Ministry1 of Education, considers why some of the possible solutions to this problem are not being more widely adopted.
