World Leisure Environments Symposium, 1975

In April 1975, the College of Architecture and Planning hosted the World Leisure Environments Symposium. Among the many discussions and lectures held over two days were The Environmental Psychology of Urban Leisure by Dr. David Canter, The Hotel as Part of the Landscape by Knud Friis, and Club Méditerranée's Philosophy and Organization as it Relates to its Physical Facilities by Linda Kundell.

The Archive is currently digitizing audio cassettes from the symposium, as well as other guest lectures from the 1960s-1990s. We just recently received these images of the event, the one above depicts the building's entrance decorated with cars, hang glider, and a banner, and the second picture, below, was taken around the corner and shows two horses with their riders near the building.
