THE COVER ...
The absence of pictorial illustration on the cover this month is by no means
accidental. We are carrying in this issue a most important document- the new
By-laws of the FAA. Since these have been presented with a comparative text
frm the current By-laws the issue constitutes a reference to which all FAA
members undoubtedly will often have recourse. Thus we thought it helpful to
title this issue for its reference value.

News & Notes
Convention Is "Go" . .
The Florida Central Convention
Committee is right now giving the
final polish to plans which the Com-
mittee firmly believes will make next
month's three-day meeting at St.
Petersburg ". . the best Convention
ever from the standpoint of profession-
al program, women's activities, student
participation and entertainment .."
with, the Committee adds, . due
respect to the many fine programs of
former years." Here's a run-down of
the Convention program highlights as
background for the Committee's state-
In developing the theme "The
Anatomy of Architecture", the profes-
sional program will be an attempt to
evaluate means for coordinating the
various aspects of construction plan-
ning and design. Panelists who will
probe various aspects of the subject

versity, internationally known for the
brilliance of his solutions to a host of
problems in structural engineering.

ence with major building projects has
qualified him as expert in the design

er, who has been largely responsible for

ALBERT LOCKETT, associated with the
firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill
that is continuing to make architec-
tural history on a nation-wide scale.
Programs for the ladies will be
equally as provocative, according to
the Committee; and for the students
a number of special events have been
planned, including a seminar led by
JAMES LUCAS of the Herman Miller
organization. Entertainment, says the
Committee, will be .. the best that
the Golden Triangle affords."
No Cause for Worry . .
Here's a reassuring note for those
FAA members-and wives-who
have viewed with some alarm the inci-
dence of encephalitis in St. Petersburg,
the site of next mqnth's FAA Con-
vention. FAA Convention Commit-
tee Chairman VERNER JOHNSON
checked about this with the Florida
State Board of Health. Last month
he received an answer to his query
from DR. WILLIAM L. WRIGHT, As-
sistant State Health Officer, Director,
Bureau of Local Health Service.
"I know of no reason," wrote Dr.
Wright, "why you cannot continue to
hold your convention in St. Petersburg
at the time now scheduled. The out-
break in St. Petersburg appears to be
ending; and we doubt that there will
be any more encephalitis in that area
this fall. Certainly, by the time of
your meeting this outbreak should
be well over with."
Backing up Dr. Wright's statement
are reports of all-out activity on the
part of practically everybody in the
greater St. Petersburg area. Spray
planes, fogging machines, squirt guns,
If you haven't already
done so, make the reser-
vation for your Conven-
tion stay at St. Pete's Sor-
eno Hotel at once. Better
drop everything and do
it now! The Convention
is closer than you think-
and although the hotel
has ample space, early
reservation will get you a
preferred room location.
It will also be a help to
your Convention Commit-
tee in planning and will
avoid last minute hurry
and confusion on your
part. .... So why don't
you DO IT NOW!
pressure bombs all have been used
to lay low the particular type of mos-
quito suspected of carrying the en-
cephalitis virus. By the time Novem-
ber 8 rolls around, St. Pete will prob-
ably be the most bug-free community
in all the Sunshine State.
Reynolds Award ...
If you haven't already done so, note
the change 'in the wording of the
"criteria" for judging submissions for
the 1963 Reynolds Memorial Award.
No longer does aluminum usage need
to be a "first" in its field-nor does
the metal need to dominate the design
as a major material. Submissions will

This clarification of the Award
jury's policy may encourage entries of
many designs that formerly have been
withheld because the use of aluminum
was not "architecturally unique". If
you know of such a design-or if
you, yourself, have produced one -
submit your nomination as promptly
as possible, but certainly before De-
cember 31, 1962. An award brochure
containing a nomination form has
been sent to all AIA members. If
you haven't received yours, write AIA
headquarters about it.
New Film ...
Now available for use by Chapters
or FAA committee groups is a new
sound and color film addition to the
five already in the FAA's film library.
Produced by the Reynolds Metals
Company, it is titled "The Philadel-
phia Story Form, Design and the
City". Those who have seen it- first
Florida showing was at last month's
meeting of the Florida South Chapter
- rate it as an excellently developed
exposition of the huge urban renewal
program that is virtually re-making
the city of Philadelphia.
Like others in the FAA's film libra-
ry, the new movie is 16mm and
running time of its two reels is approx-
imately an hour. It can be obtained
on a loan basis upon request to the
executive offices of the FAA in Mi-
ami. P/R films now on file for use
include "What Is A House", "A
School for Johnny", "Buildings for
Business", "Designing A Better To-
morrow", and "A Place to Worship".
November Deadline . .
Entry slips for participation in the
AIA's 1963 Honor Awards Program
must be received at AIA Headquarters
in Washington together with a $10
fee for each entry prior to Novem-
ber 28, 1962. Entries will be judged
at the Octagon January 28-30, 1963;
and winning submissions will be ex-
hibited throughout the 1963 AIA
Convention at the Americana Hotel,
Miami Beach, May 5-9, 1963.
There's no time to lose! FAA offi-
cials and also members of the Con-
vention's Host, the Florida South
Chapter are anxious for many Flor-
ida architects to be represented.

tend the Conference of the South

three for the office of AIA Regional
Director; four to cover the two vacan-

Since the Committee adopted the pol-
icy of naming more than one individ-
ual for each office, a contest in each
vacancy will automatically occur. In
addition to those named by the Com-
mittee, the roster of nominees could
be enlarged by nominations from the
Convention floor for any of the six
offices to be filled by 1963.
This year nominees have been asked
to list briefly their organizational back-
grounds at chapter, state and national
levels, the object being to provide ac-
credited Chapter delegates with out-
lines of experience data as a basis for
voting. Listed here are as complete

We can clean up a substantial part
of the traffic mess by judicious use of
monorail or other new gimmicks in
mass transportation. I bet on mono-
rail because most traffic engineers say
it isn't practical. Monorail has another
application which hasn't been talked
about much. There was an article
about it in the April issue of Florida
Planning and Development. The idea
is that we might well use high-level
transportation nets in big-city CBD's.
The electric elevator, first used com-
mercially in 1889, was a prime mover
in piling central business districts
high. The very density of high-rise
development in major cities may help
solve some of the problems. With
high buildings up, or soon to be built,
in every block of the core, opportunity
grows for a systematic high-level trans-
portation network for pedestrians, sup-
ported largely by the buildings them-
selves, and running partly through,
partly between, buildings.
The elevators continue to provide
vertical transport. The hallways, link-
ed by bridges between buildings, pro-
vide minor streets, Moving walkways
coming through near the elevators act
as collector streets. Monorail sur-
rounds and perhaps cuts through the
CBD at the 10th floor level (or what-
ever is selected as the optimum) to
provide the equivalent of arterial traf-
fic-handling, running from parking
garages and high-rise apartments at
the rim. We could multiply the effi-
ciency of the CBD by such a system
-and we could build it if we want to.
Other technological advances are
social and economic, and some of
them are terrifying. Convinced in the
late '30s that everyone should own his
own single-family mortgage, we sold
the nation on the idea and developed
a bungaloid culture on 6,000-square-
foot lots, through the medium of
FHA. We are now apparently ap-
proaching the town-house and high-
rise epoch, fighting off those with a
vested interest in single-family houses
and 6,000-foot lots. Through mass
communication media we can induce
a high degree of conformity in an
alarmingly short time.

which technology makes possible so
wide a variety of choices, in which

communication is so terribly effective
in convincing people that this or that
choice is right, and in which neither
the planner nor anyone else is in a
position to give wise guidance?
This hasn't covered much of the
territory we should have covered. We
have not discussed the manner in
which planning is being misused to
prevent needed tax reforms, for in-
stance. In how many cities does plan-
ning, through the zoning instrument,
inhibit the erection of good low-cost
housing because the tax system is
obsolete? How much planning aims
at defending an indefensible tax base
- and so shapes the city of the future
to fit past lethargy in the tax depart-
We haven't discussed zoning, on
which reform is long overdue. Devel-
oped in New York City in times even
more primitive than these, zoning was
a magnificent first step. After that
first step, zoning sat down among its
withering laurels. It is still sitting.
What should we do about better
public control of land use and timing
of development? About better devices
for acquiring land for public purposes?
About improved means for clearance
and redevelopment of residential, com-
mercial and industrial slums? How do
we assure that land developers are
neither subsidized by the public nor
unduly penalized? Present law and
administrative policy errs in both di-
rections on occasion. Certainly it is
not good sense to force developers to
adopt obsolescent subdivision patterns
simply because planners are living in
the past or don't know what they are
after or should be after. Neither is it
good sense to permit developers to
saddle the taxpayer, present or future,
with costs which should be met by
the developer, or with patterns of
development which wreak havoc with
the urban environment.
The purpose of all this has not been
to convince you that we have the
answers and that if everyone will fol-
low the planning book we are headed
for Utopia. What I have tried to say
is that we are headed into planning
by necessity and on a massive scale
and that we are not as ready for it
as we might be.

We have not learned as much as
we should have from the experience
behind us. We have accepted without
question certain untested procedures
and formulas and have applied them
over and over, assuming that they
would fit the future. It is inexcusable
that there has been so little appraisal
of what the same formulas and pro-
cedures produced in the past, so little
comparison of what planners planned
for as a future and the future which
There is little reason for compla-
cency about planning. But there is no
reason whatever to throw up our
hands. I think planning will survive
and prosper, but it will have to change
some of its ways. First it will have to
sort out what it can and cannot do.
Second it will have to go about its
job a little differently.
To begin with, we should abandon
the detailed Master Plan for the year
2000 in favor of something useful.
There remain a few permanent gen-
eral objectives which planning should
defend. For example, cities must have
land, water and air.
On air, the problem is pollution,
and one of the eternal objectives of
planning should be to hold air pollu-
tion to a minimum.
On water, the problem is quantity
and quality. Mark quantity down as
unknown, prepare plausible projec-
tions, multiply by a fat safety factor,
and then operate consistently to con-
serve plenty of watershed and plenty
of water supply, and to prevent or
correct pollution of surface water and
water in the ground.
On land, the problem in long-range
terms can probably be stated only in
such general language as "suitable
division between private and public
lands." The purpose is to provide an
ample and convenient framework for
public and private uses without know-
ing in detail what those uses will be.
It will be hard for planners to stop
at this. We will want to make long-
range assumptions on population den-
sities and traffic flow and areas for
residence, commerce and industry and
so on all for an unknown popula-
tion with an unknown technology and
unknown social and cultural values.
This is a waste of time we should save
for working closer at hand.
The long-range plan for land use
should be a framework within which

many kinds of public and private uses,
balanced out in detailed short-range
plans, can shift and change and mix
and separate through the centuries.
And we should start with public land.
On this, we should move consist-
ently toward an extensive and, where
possible, continuous network of public
land adapted to multiple purposes-
open space, recreation, protection of
water sheds, parks, schools, public
and quasi-public buildings, transporta-
tion in whatever form it may take,
and things as yet unknown. The pub-
lic land net is the permanent objec-
tive, the historic goal. It can be
achieved by pursuit of a series of
short-range ends which in relation to
it become means. As present and fu-
ture short-range public requirements
unfold in a succession of related plans
adapted to their particular times, lands
contributing to the net should be ac-
quired and held.

In the years ahead, I believe plan-

This kind of planning, in this kind
of local government, would inevitably
be closer to the working problems of
the present and near future than is
the kind of planning we have present-
ly established as a model. It would
work toward the few long-range ob-
jectives which appear to have lasting
validity, but it would do so by build-
ing a better tomorrow solidly on today
rather than by spinning, visions of the
City Beautiful for the Year 2000.
I believe that if we can work in this
direction locally-and if we can make
our suggestions heard in higher levels
of government-we. can make plan-
ning a great deal more useful and ef-
fective. I believe that if we do not,
historians may write off the city plan-
ning movement as an interesting phase
in governmental administration which
was succeeded by the slum clearance
and public housing movement, which
was succeeded in its turn by some-
thing else fragmentary and appealing.

38 THE FLORIDA ARCHITECT
IT'S BEEN A GOOD YEAR THUS FAR . .
Figures just released by the F. W. Dodge Corporation show, on a national basis,
that the volume of construction in August this year was up two percent over a
year ago. Non-residential building showed an eight percent gain, residential
building a gain of four percent. For the first eight months of this year total con-
struction was up 12 percent over the corresponding period last year with resi-
dential building up 15 percent and the non-residential category showing a 10
percent increase. Biggest jump was in contracts for manufacturing plants. Fig-
ures for this month of August showed a 24 percent gain1 and in early months
of this year volume of contracts spurted as much as 40 percent over 1961.
NOW IT'S BUILDINGS BY THE MILE . .
Given the ground space, it's perfectly practical to build a structure five miles
long, according to the conviction of Professor Henry Charles Burge of the Uni-
versity of Southern California's School of Architecture and Fine Arts. Advocated
for use in low-density areas, the horizontal structure would employ moving side-
walks in place of elevators needed in a vertical building. Cost might be $20 per
sq. ft., ". . as compared with a possible cost of $100 per sq. ft. for a mile-high
building." As a further buttress to the soundness of his five-mile building con-
cept Professor Burge cites the force ratio the energy required to move one
pound vertically for one foot will move the same pound five feet horizontally.
The ratio works, says the professor, from the time construction starts through its
completion and continues in the service and maintenance of the structure and
relative to all operations within it, regardless of character. The logical result is
less work or energy therefore higher efficiencies which, translated into
dollars mean lower costs and proportionately greater returns.
CARPETING IT'S NOW IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS . .
Carpeting has recently assumed a new character as a construction material in
public schools. A report just issued by the American Carpet Institute covered use
of heavy-duty carpeting as basic flooring in two high schools and one elemen-
tary school. In two of these schools precise performance and maintenance records
have been kept part of these in comparison with other types of flooring mater-
ials installed in other properties of the local school system. In each instance main-
tenance costs were substantially lower for carpeting, though initial costs were
higher. It was found that the material greatly improved acoustical qualities in
all areas where it had been used. Furthermore a psychological advantage result-
ed from use of carpeting. Educators have commented on the "de-institutionaliz-
ing" effect of carpet on school interiors and have noted a marked reduction in
"loud talking and horseplay" by students entering carpeted areas. John Lyon
Reid, FAIA, architect of the high school on which comparative records were kept,
noted the "dignified environment" resulting from use of carpeting. In his opin-
ion, ". . behavior patterns of students will be enormously improved by this kind
ERECTION TIME 20 MINUTES PER HOUSE . .
Application of urethane foam as rigid insulation for building panels is constantly
expanding. Now a California organization has produced panels of the material
in curved hexagonal and pentagonal sections which can be fitted together to
form geodesic domes. The domes with a range of use from vacation cabins to
storage depots in sub-arctic temperatures are prefabricated in various sizes.
The smallest, with a diameter of 16 feet and a height of 8 feet, will withstand
winds up to 160 miles per hour. Dismantled, its components form a package
lx6x7-feet. Two people using wrenches only can erect it in about 20 minutes.
It's Next Month...
The Florida Central Chapter is the Host for the
FAA's 1962 Convention. .. The Red Coats
have sparked a stimulating program on the
Convention's theme "Anatomy of
Architecture" . Mark your calendar -
be sure to be in St. Pete next month . .
Headquarters of the FAA's 1962 Convention will be the Soreno
Hotel, one of the largest and finest of Florida's west coast. It's
convenient to all downtown St. Petersburg's facilities. It is also
near the yacht harbor and commands a beautiful view of Tampa
Bay. Best of all, it's roomy, comfortable and inexpensive!
