Architecture for the Future: Learning Empowerment

Community College Journal Volume 75, Number 2, ISSN 1067-1803


Facilities that accommodate technology are much in demand today and nowhere more so than at colleges and in other learning environments all over the country. But the cry for "high-tech facilities" rings false: Buildings designed simply to look high-tech will be outdated more quickly than ever. It is no surprise that the very best high-tech facilities--think Kahn's Salk Institute and Tod Williams and Billie Tsien's Neurosciences Institute--are also great examples of timeless architecture. This article discusses how architectural design of new facilities helps institutions make effective use of technology and features Regnier Center for Technology and Business, Johnson County Community College, Overland Park, Kansas as an example.
