Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This work seeks to determine the design criteria for the buildings of the public educational units of the
state of Zulia. For this, a holistic, descriptive research was proposed with a qualitative approach, with
descriptive documentary design and multi-variable trait (eventual). Public educational institutions
bring together the largest number of children and young people enrolled in the Venezuelan school
system, with Zulia being the region with the highest school enrollment. Thus, the main beneficiaries
of this study are the agencies responsible for implementing public policies in terms of school
infrastructure, as well as the communities served with such spaces. The analysis procedure was
qualitative, with the intention of categorizing the data of the sources used. They were made following
the formal, spatial, functional, environmental aspects and the constructive technique of the buildings
studied. From this perspective, the general design criteria for the public educational buildings of the
region, framed in the current FEDE regulations, are listed.
