PUBLISHING OF THE BOOK ON SCHOOL MANUAL
The title of the book is "Manual For Preparing a Master Plan for Existing Schools".
Every architectural office should bring out publications based on their experience. After the Kerala Flood Manual, we are bringing out this publication which we hope will be of use to all who works with the planning and design of Government Schools in India. Classrooms, library, laboratories, playgrounds etc. are crucial elements of a child’s growth in learning and creating future citizens of the society. The guidelines in the manual emphasise good design, quality, safety, cost and its effectiveness in innovations in educational pedagogy.
This manual is co-authored with Shruthi Raghunath, Swathy Subramanian and Aishwarya Chauhan. Shruti has co-ordinated the entire work and all the sketches are done by Swati. I would like to thank my other colleagues also who have given their assistance and co-operation in the preparation of the manual.
We used to get lot of enquiries for improving the public schools and we could not take up these works. We decided to bring out a manual to help the different schools. We are not having any copyright on this book and it can be reproduced for non-commercial purposes.
