Total Recall

For 25 years, American School & University has been publishing a special issue dedicated to the best in education design.

Although design has changed dramatically over the years, you will find that the jury criteria for award-winning projects has remained consistent. The first jury was looking for technical innovation, and 1986's jury mentioned the use of regional materials. In 1989, the jury wanted to see natural light incorporated into the designs; 1993's jury talked about security, among other things. The 2007 jury: sustainability, security, innovation.

The following pages are a retrospective of these 25 years of citation winners. In addition, we've reprinted biographies of William W. Caudill and Louis I. Kahn, for whom our main award winners are named.

Finally, we want to recognize the schools, architects and hard-working jurors that have helped make these issues true sourcebooks for education design.

Biography of William W. Caudill

Of all the giants in 20th-century architecture, Bill Caudill (1914-1983) more than anyone believed people were more important than buildings. This belief distinguished him from his contemporaries — all of whom, like Caudill, left indelible marks on the architecture of our age. But where they were concerned with form or function, or "less is more," Caudill's concern was with people. It was the simplicity of his words and the unvarnished humanism of his beliefs for which he was most widely admired.

William Wayne Caudill, FAIA, pioneer of "architecture by team" and champion of humanistic design, was both a formidable figure in the architectural profession and a frank, humorous, sensitive man. After he graduated from Oklahoma State University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), his career ranged from the "hard-nosed professional," as he liked to say, to educator, author, researcher, lecturer and international traveler.

In 1946, he founded a small practice in Austin, Texas, that grew into an international corporation called CRS Sirrine, a Houston-based design and construction firm with more than 3,000 employees. It was "the house Caudill built." [The company was sold in 1994; HOK purchased the architectural side of the firm.]

At the root of Caudill's vision was the philosophy that architecture was for everyone, not a select few, and that people should be engaged in the design of their own buildings. He wrote, "Buildings are never fully successful unless the users love their buildings." He believed in an inclusive rather than exclusive approach and thus conceived the "problem seeking/problem solving" method of programming and designing buildings that involved users as well as client decisionmakers. He was a skilled designer of many award-winning buildings; yet his expertise was in conceptualizing new solutions based on the fulfillment of human needs.

A prairie populist by nature and a native of Hobart, Okla., Caudill received recognition at the age of 26, in 1941, when he wrote Space for Teaching, the first of 12 books and 80 articles on functional, low- cost, energy-efficient school design. The book intrigued educators and architects, and became a force in revolutionizing schoolhouses in America. Caudill's career as an authority on school architecture was launched — and he had yet to design his first school building!

When he did design a school — in Blackwell, Okla., in 1948 — it was acclaimed in Collier's magazine for its many innovations as "The Little Red Schoolhouse Goes Modern." It turned out that Space for Teaching not only put a fledgling firm on the map and into business, but it also gave CRS a specialty, one it developed for the next 20 years in 26 states and eight foreign countries with elementary schools, junior and senior high schools, and universities.

Caudill conducted research studies (1946-1949) on natural ventilation and natural lighting of school buildings at the Texas Engineering Experiment Station at Texas A&M University, where he taught for six years, summing up his research in his book Toward Better School Design (1953). He believed in research as the basis for new solutions to problems in school design.

He continued to probe new solutions in modern schools. Organizations and publications such as Life magazine in 1954, The School Executive in 1957, and Educational Facilities in 1959 commissioned him to design or research prototype facilities for the school of the future. American School and University contracted his firm to write a series of research reports based on problems encountered in planning and designing school buildings (1953-1959). The legendary journalist, Edward R. Murrow, interviewed Caudill in 1955 on his TV show, "See It Now," on advances in school design.

Caudill became a Fellow of AIA, received honorary degrees, served on the boards of CRS, Herman Miller, Inc., and AIA, and learned just before his death of his induction into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, the first architect so honored.

Bill Caudill urged us beyond pure form or function to the true beauty of people using and appreciating their buildings. To him that was the real architectural experience, the kind — like his wisdom and the spirit of his legacy — that will endure. — Randle Pollock, reprinted from the first AS&U Architectural Portfolio, 1983

Biography of Louis I. Kahn

Louis Kahn (1901-1974), through a great love of architecture, a lifelong effort, and a few years of intense activity at the end of his life, reintroduced inspirational and spiritual values to an art that had become stereotyped into anonymity and abstractions. His buildings are a luminous testimonial to his beliefs, and, like all great buildings, they challenge time as works of extraordinary beauty.

An immigrant to Philadelphia in 1905 from the small Russian island of Saarama in the Baltic Sea, he was at the same time an immigrant to a new age which slowly had come to recognize the frightening limits of industrialization and technology.

By his own account, he began making drawings by the age of 3, and continued to be recognized and appreciated for that ability among his friends throughout his youth. From 1912 through 1920, he attended Central High School and Public Industrial Art School in Philadelphia, winning numerous prizes for his drawings. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1924. During that same year, while working in the office of John Molitor, the city architect, he was appointed chief of design for the Sesquicentennial Exhibition of 1926.

In the 1930s, Kahn was associated with several architects who influenced his convictions. Among these were George Howe and Oscar Stonorov. His association with Clarence S. Stein and Henry Wright, as well, led him to an involvement in the social aspects of architecture, such as public housing and "greenbelt towns."

In the 1950s, Kahn began to emerge as an architect of national prominence.

After the period 1948-1957, during which he served as chief critic in architectural design and professor of architecture at Yale University, Kahn divided his time between his offices on Walnut Street in Philadelphia and the school of architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, except for the traveling that became extensive in his later years.

His real friends were his students, the only ones capable of questioning him, of arousing his interest. He always was ready to defend their work in review sessions, to see their potential, and to reveal hidden talent. Friends among his colleagues were few, even though he greatly enjoyed camaraderie and good parties, where he relished being at the center of attention. In every sense, Louis Kahn loved life.

The most important formal contributions to architectural language made by Kahn centered on the volumetric aspect of a building and the configuration of its plan. The first consists in the duplication of the peripheral enclosure of a building. His interest in the potentialities of this enclosure for the expression of external sun-control elements appeared as early as his design for the Psychiatric hospital in Philadelphia in 1944, where deep horizontal slabs with terra-cotta tubes produce a pattern of shading of the slate-clad surfaces of the building elevations. Later, in the project for the U.S. Consular Office in Luanda, Angola, in 1959, screen walls perforated by arched openings support a roof trellis that extends beyond the glass enclosure of the building.

Two buildings that Kahn designed for Yale were built more than 20 years apart, and are instructive about Kahn's use of materials. The Yale Art Gallery, completed in 1953, gave Kahn a sudden renown. The floor structure, made of reinforced concrete tetrahedrons, contains the air-distribution system. The northern wall facing the garden is a carefully proportioned mullioned glass wall. The south wall facing the street is of continuous masonry. The Center for British Art and Studies, completed in 1974, was constructed with a frame structure of reinforced concrete enclosed by sandblasted stainless steel panels on the exterior and by interior wood panels. In both buildings, the materials used perform an explanatory role: a strength and precise clarity in relation to structural function, orientation, light, and atmosphere. In each case, these materials assume the unique role of transforming spaces from being abstract to being human.

Much has happened in architecture since Kahn's death, but his work continues to succeed in a time of incredibly fleeting values because he gave us forms with a sense of permanency. His style gave to modern architecture a sense of maturity and a newfound sense of richness. — Reprinted from the first AS&U Architectural Portfolio, 1983

1991 jury commentary

  • Organization of functional spaces in a clear, easily defined manner is important. It was a plus if this organization showed creativity in the way it handled circulation and required relationships.

  • Quality of space as represented by the three-dimensional character of the interiors. This could be reinforced through color, natural or artificial lighting, or structural expression.

  • Appropriateness of a building as it relates to its site, climate and region, and how that building relates to a neighborhood or surrounding campus structures is important.

  • Permanence in the materials and expression is another important factor. Fadish trends tend to date buildings quickly. Good design should have a long-lasting quality that works well over the life of the institution.

1993 jury commentary

  • Planning issues: The plan must be student-centered and teacher-driven and must incorporate community use of the facility without interfering with the academic functions. There must be strong evidence of the educational program within the overall plan. The plan must be flexible, incorporating wiring for technology, as well as including a variety of spaces to meet the diverse needs of students.

  • Design objectives: the use of natural light; creation of usable and memorable outside spaces; the quality of the instructional spaces; effective use of materials and colors to create a mood or setting; scale and proportion of the design in relationship to users; image the facility projects and its reflection on the local culture and age of the child; flow of the building from outside to inside.

  • Creative and effective use of resources: effective energy use; environmentally sustainable architecture; design coordination of equipment and furnishings with the building; amount of money spent on the facility and its cost-effectiveness; inclusion of an appropriate infrastructure and wiring to accommodate computers and telecommunications; consideration for long-term maintenance and the quality of interior materials; the ability to meet the needs of all students; security and handicapped access.
