The Inclusion of Elements in a Facilities Design

Design Elements

Structural Functionalism

  • The concept of structural functionalism is linked to the idea of carrying capacity

Note: Cage, Playing surface

Shuffleboard Courts


surrounded by asphalt

Ambiance of an outdoor pool

concrete topped by chain link

  • Problem

Combination of relatively permanent material

with some sense of aesthetics

Hotel Playground – Rhodes

Colour, texture, materials

Playground in Paris park – material, colour, style

Compromise - may be difficult

Large vehicles + high volume

Turning area

Surface - wet and cold weather

Disney - water bridge for ferries

Tunnel Campground - North of Calgary

Physical Functionalism

  • Concern for movement




Large numbers + few ‘high quality’ attractions



Wet N Wild

Close to the ‘action’

Sense of anticipation

Value for wait time


  • A straight road is the shortest distance

Cultural & Aesthetic Functionalism

  • Linkage to the value or image associated with the particular area, activity, or resource

  • The sense of what is ‘appropriate’ to the activity, facility or area

    • Example of a scenic outlook - the goal of say a distant mountain is important but so are the immediate surrounds - and the area between the viewer and the objective

    • A paper mill with attendant contamination and smells would not be appropriate

  • Senses of - balance, proportion, scale, colour, atmosphere and perspective are important

A) Order and Progression

  • There should be a logical progression of physical characteristics among the part of the offering

The Elmwood Club - the logic of entrance

The Car Park

Mobile trains from themed car areas

Distribution to different modes - ferry, monorail

Progression while travelling

Main entrance - theme

distribution of maps, services

Main Street

Busch Gardens


Modes of transport

The logic of flow
