NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: Immediately Demolition of buildings on New College's East Campus site began Friday, marking the start of the college's campus construction program. A towering column of billowing smoke marked the start of the program as the first of 16 antiquated barracks buildings were set afire. The former apartments are on the 20 acre East Campus site for which plans will be presented Monday by I.M. Pei, celebrated architect who has been appointed to design the entire campus. Actual construction of buildings for September's incoming Charter Class will begin within a few weeks. Razing of the existing structures is expected to be completed within two weeks, and is being done with the approval of the Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority and the City of Sarasota. Portions of the buildings will be destroyed by fire and others will be leveled and re-moved. There is almost no salvagable material in the buildings. City fire-fighting forces are using the demolition activity for training. An airport fire truck is also standing by. Some 50 families who lived in the airport apartments were relocated last month with the assistance of a number of community organizations, the First Methodist Church and New College itself. Plans for the initial phase of classroom, laboratory and housing will be seen for the first time Monday by public officials and the press, and later in the day by friends of the college of Manatee and Sarasota counties. Receptions will be held in College Hall. (more)


Demolition -page two The world-famous architect will be accompanied by several members of his staff. They will present plans, renderings and a model of the East Campus, which has been detailed to harmonize with a master plan of the entire $15 million Bayfront campus, adjoining the Ringling Museum. College President, Dr. George F. Baughman, has said the college program is on schedule. "We are moving ahead with our faculty appointments, curriculum planning and scholarship development as well as the physical aspects of the campus." ##
