CityDeck: How to Increase Access to A River and Diversify Social Life Along It | green streets | Scoop.it

What can you tell me about the areas near a lake or a river? Are they good enough to provide people recreation, entertainment or peaceful moments in the middle of the nature? Most of them ignore people’s essential needs and if we’re talking about a project in the city, then its design and functionality reduces to some benches in austere combination. It’s not the case here. 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 life along it. The idea was to give people many choices about where to sit, depending on their own desires, their body type, their mood, and their attraction to various ambient light, heat, or weather conditions.
