Merrifield, Tone Vale
File documents an unexecuted proposal for additions to the Merrifield Unit of the Tone Vale Hospital in Taunton, Somerset, England, United Kingdom. The additions to this children's mental hospital unit were to be implemented in phases due to budget constraints and also because it allowed for a "re-think" of the design and construction between phases. The hospital expansion is based on a modular construction system using an open timber cube, and is similar to that used for the Fun Palace Pilot Project (AP144.S2.D46). A set of stapled drawings includes plans and diagrammatic axonometric drawings which show numerous addition phases and emphasizes the functional relationships between the various phases. A complete sequence of numbered drawings includes plans and axonometric drawings for the existing structure, landscaping, and the modular unit structures for different phases of the additions. Reprographic copies were created from original drawings and notes on some of the copies indicate possible variations in the use of major activity areas in phase 1. A number of drawings are marked with cropping dimensions, possibly for publication purposes. Material in this file was produced in1964.
File contains presentation drawings, photographic materials, and textual records.
Materials in this series were kept in the original order in which they were received.
