Elementary School. By Ellen Larson Vaughan, Steven Winter Associates, Inc.Updated by Judy Marks, NCEF Director Last updated: 03-17-2011 Overview Elementary School buildings are the setting for the first four to eight years of a child's formal education, a period of structured schooling that is compulsory in most countries.

Elementary School

In the United States, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), first enacted in 1965 and reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act, is the principal federal law that affects kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12). Elementary school usually begins for children aged four to seven (four if the school includes kindergarten, which is a program for children four to six years of age that serves as an introduction to school).

More than other building types, school facilities have a profound impact on their occupants and the functions of the building, namely teaching and learning. Building Attributes.

In the “access house” we put lumber of Japanese cedar on all of the face to cover and hide cement wall (cold material) to make people feel warmth of native wood. There is no dead end in the “access house.” Through the windows, sunroofs and doors, sunshine falls onto the floor and people can have a look each other and have a direct path to dish service table. We also provide a gallery to display photographs and paintings. So, in the “access house” children can play and study in various ways with the encouraging things. The floor is moderately sloped away from the entrance to inside. From both library room and staff room people can look their friends and teachers through the various-sized windows. Besides, it will be very good and easy for the teachers to care about them. Credits Related links.

Site Planning and Design. The previous discussion was intended to provide a background for the heart of this text.

Site Planning and Design

Just as there is a legal requirement for a comprehensive plan as the basis for land use controls, so there is a theoretical requirement for comprehensive planning as the basis for sound site design. By virtue of its name, comprehensive land use planning suggests a broad approach to the process of new development or expansion of existing development within the environment on the basis of a range of considerations including economic, social and physical factors among others.

It certainly implies planning within a larger context beyond the individual site. In practice however, this may often not be the case. Steiner criticizes Lynch’s site planning model (See ensuing section for an explanation of this model), stating that “design is not part of the broader planning concerns, except in its response to government restrictions, nor is the site linked to its larger context” (Steiner 208).

A. 1. 1. 1. Site plan. For Archaeological site plan, see Archaeological plan Example of a Site plan.

Site plan

Such a plan of a site is a "graphic representation of the arrangement of buildings, parking, drives, landscaping and any other structure that is part of a development project".[2] A site plan is a "set of construction drawings that a builder or contractor uses to make improvements to a property. Counties can use the site plan to verify that development codes are being met and as a historical resource. Site plans are often prepared by a design consultant who must be either a licensed engineer, architect, landscape architect or land survey".[3] Site plan topics[edit] Site analysis[edit]
