The CityDeck is the heart of a multi-phase redevelopment project along Green Bay’s Fox River. The project aims to allow for significantly increased access to the river and to diversify social and ecological life along it.
EXISTING CONDITIONS + CHALLENGES
The site is a 2-acre strip of land, typically measuring 50 to 60 feet wide, that runs along the edge of the Fox River in downtown Green Bay. It is about one-quarter-mile in length and is situated between two bridges that cross the river. At the project’s beginning, adjacent parcels were empty, abandoned (a large yellow warehouse), or in use as parking lots. Nearby buildings turned their back on the riverfront. Unsurprisingly, there was little social or civic life here, and no reason to visit; the elevated walk along existing bulkhead walls prevented any direct access down to the river—as well as up to the city from boats.

ARCHITECTURE & LANDSCAPE CONCEPT
To achieve the objectives of an architecturally iconic museum of art with versatile art exhibition spaces in a highly sustainable project this proposal defines the concept of art exhibition beyond the conventional “stuffy” notions of uniformly rectangular, windowless interior galleries. Instead, the project provides both interior and exterior venues for a variety of public experiences, and creates the opportunity for day-lighting and sustainability in ways that are unprecedented for art museums.

In 1933 the Tennessee Valley Authority constructed a model community, Norris, Tennessee, as part of the Norris Dam construction project. A key feature of this New Deal village was the Norris House, a series of homes built as models for modern and efficient living. In light of the 75th anniversary of the Norris Project, an evolving interdisciplinary team of UT students and faculty are reinterpreting the Norris paradigm and creating a New Norris House – a sustainable home designed for the 21st century. In 2009 the New Norris House was one of six winners nationally of the Environmental Protection Agency’s People Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Competition. It offers a replicable model for contemporary sustainable living that holds the promise of significant benefit across East Tennessee.

English writer Thomas Quincy talked in his classic (Confessions of an English opium-eater) of the pleasure that, after making sure all possible victims and risk were absent, a burning building can provide, one century after, Austrian pyromaniacs of Coop-himelblau used fire as a material in their firsts architectural interventions and Swiss French Bernard Tschumi theorized, radical, an architecture that produced a pyrotechnical pleasure so useful, he stated, as lighting matches.
