OUR MISSION & HISTORY

In 1969, the late Bruce McCarty, FAIA, then-President of the local AIA, alongside several local architects, returned from a trip to the community design center in Philadelphia and gathered roughly forty local professionals to discuss the need for such a center in this region. On April 15th, 1970, the East Tennessee Community Design Center (ETCDC) was founded. The objective of ETCDC has been to make East Tennessee a better place by bringing professional design and planning assistance to communities and organizations lacking resources to acquire those services. Our mission is to Envision, Inspire, and Improve East Tennessee communities through design, collaboration, and leadership. The ETCDC also serves as a catalyst to initiate projects within our service area and serves as an advocate for quality design in the public realm. The ETCDC offers these services through the pro-bono contributions of area architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers, and other professionals. Since its founding, the ETCDC has completed over 1,100 projects in the 16 county region it serves!

THE COMMUNITY COLLABORATIVE The Community Collaborative is a focused effort between multiple organizations on the challenges facing our communities. The goal of the Collaborative is to highlight an area’s history, bring awareness to its future potential, and then promote sustainable growth. Each year a focus area or issue is established, community input is gathered, and multiple studies and efforts are performed. The collaborative concludes each year in a public event and a publication that summarizes the research, designs, concepts, and efforts performed that year. This discourse in turn begins to shape public policy and private development strategies. The Collaborative is the vehicle for our community to envision the possibilities of our region and shape our collective aspirations for the future. In 2020, the focus of The Collaborative was Sutherland Avenue, known by residents to be ‘The Most Eclectic Street in Knoxville.’ The following pages include the efforts of the ETCDC based upon local input, student work at the University of Tennessee College of Architecture + Design, and the work of Knoxville-area architecture firms to envision the potential future of Sutherland Avuenue.

INTRO

STATION

1

In February of 2020, the ETCDC held a community input session at the National Guard Amory next to West High School on Sutherland Avenue. Five ‘stations’ of engagement were set up and participants were given a ‘passport’ to guide them through the stations. Each station asked a different question or series of questions related to who they were and what they wanted to see Sutherland become in the future. Over eighty-five community members participated.

Station 1, alongside the ‘passport’ we handed out, helped gather basic info on participants, such as age and area of residence. We discovered a great cross-section of both neighborhoods and generations represented.

The Community Input that we received has been summarized for the purposes of this booklet. If you would like to read or see the full results from our surveys, please visit us online at: https://communitydc.org/project/sutherland-avenue-community-input-session

Station 2 asked participants to look at three study areas along Sutherland and tell us through the use of colored dots what they liked and disliked along the corridor. The graphic below was used to better explain the exercise.

“It’s Like a stoplight” Green, like go, means something can continue as is; it’s a community asset. Yellow, like slow, means something should change slightly; it’s ok but improvable. Red, like stop, means something needs to change totally; it’s hurting the area in some way.


Circles represent the summation of all the surrounding data gathered during the community’s February input meeting. Circle size indicates the amount of votes received. Circle color indicates majority of vote type, but may include other votes as well.

Station 3 asked two questions about Sutherland’s physical state. We compiled the data for each question into two top-10 lists. Shown here are each of the top 4.

Question 1:

What is one thing keeping Sutherland Avenue from being more beautiful?�


Question 2:

What is one physical improvement you’d like to see along Sutherland?

Station 4 asked people two questions. The first asked which types of businesses they want to see on Sutherland, while the second asked which types they don’t want to see.

What the community voted they do NOT want to see:

MOM + POP STORES

The most popular response wasn’t a specific type of business; people just want to see businesses that are ‘locally owned’

ARTISTIC FREEDOM

The third highest response called for a ‘Maker’ space - a newer concept of a public space where artists and artisans of all kinds can gather to create their masterpieces.

While maintaining the eclectic nature of Sutherland’s identity, the studio has proposed four “Connectors� along Sutherland, with a cluster of mixed commercial and residential uses at four locations. Each Connection is a walkable pedestrian neighborhood district, while compact parking and drone-on-demand transit promotes connectivity along Sutherland and nearby areas.

24 Sutherland Avenue Enhancement Plan


1. Legacy Business Connector To the far west, legacy businesses remain clustered in a mixed use commercial and residential proposal, with many restaurants and a proposed market site. 500 units are proposed along with recreational amenities, compact parking, and a daycare. Legacy businesses are defined as privately owned local businesses, with strong commitments to the area. 2. Transit Connector Based on Sutherland’s connection to railroad and air travel history in Knoxville, new proposals provide innovative compact parking, drone, and vehicular infrastructure, along with new housing typologies for short stays and mixed income levels. As part of the innovative Drone Post logistics center, legacy restaurants can expand their business model with drone delivery near their kitchens. 3. Recreation Connector Recreational fields and private sector recreation businesses have thrived for decades along Sutherland. New recreational mixed uses include an extensive wellness center with physical therapy facilities, gyms, and pools; a nature center; prefabricated housing; and a large scale training / practice indoor facility for gymnastics, soccer, dance, rock climbing, and other activities. 4. Commerce and Innovation At the far east end of Sutherland, a makerspace, an Innovation hub, and workforce training center support 21st century commerce, continuing the tradition of innovation dating to the earliest times of the area. These hypothetical proposals emerged from analysis, an understanding of the area’s history, community input sessions, and site research, exploring many themes: commerce, fabrication, transport, recreation, housing, and urban food opportunities.

University of Tennessee Third Year Architecture, Davis

The New Street for 2050 As an initial exercise, students tried to imagine streets and city transit in the next three decades. Student proposals included imaginative approaches for street lighting, bike lanes, LED crosswalks, drones, autonomous vehicle-based transit, and data driven coded lighting systems. Community input and transportation planners affirmed the value of a three-lane vehicular route for Sutherland Avenue, with a central turning lane and designated bike lanes. The proposed street includes greenspace buffers, shade trees, and a redesigned street proportion. New vertical lighting for widened sidewalks, underlit benches, and streetscape designs improve the pedestrian safety and experience along Sutherland.

26 Sutherland Avenue Enhancement Plan


As a hypothetical concept, a drone-based transit system has on-demand DUVs: Drone Utility Vehicles which accommodate up to six passengers. Elevated “Drone Connectors� at four locations along Sutherland provide a location for the drone passenger drop off and pick-up locations. Initially, these DUVs replace the localized bus system along Sutherland, connecting passengers the length of Sutherland and to nearby locations from the University of Tennessee to West Town Mall. While all students contributed innovative ideas, the final street design was developed by Evy Vandivort.

HERITAGE HERITAGE CENTER BY HARRY TARTER

“Fostering Legacy and local businesses in changing cities” The Heritage Center brings together community and existing legacy businesses in a commercial relationship. It will be a center that responds to the legacy businesses, makes a cohesive impact on the local community, creates spaces that facilitate commercial interaction with businesses, and encourages customer involvement.

TRANSPORT DRONE POST

RESEARCH AND PROGRAM BY: PATRICK DOMBROWSKI This proposal for a Drone Post is a prototype for small scale deliveries for local businesses, combined with the a drone service center for the United States Postal Service. As the post office adopts new technologies, drone deliveries for small packages will be handled in these types of local Drone Post centers. In particular, this prototypical design is intended to support local legacy restaurants with convenient ways to expand their business model for takeout and delivery orders, with rapid, centralized drone capacities. Complementary mixed uses in the Sutherland Drone Post create a new synergy for local businesses, beyond pedestrian and vehicular patterns alone.

This large site combines innovative mixed uses in unexpected ways: • Legacy businesses, typically • restaurants, are located at the sidewalk level along Sutherland. These restaurant kitchens can quickly transport meals for drone delivery on the roof. • • Four floors of residential units, above the commercial uses of the building, typically along the southern and eastern edge. Market rate units, access to amenities, and affordable • developer incentives, intend to create diverse residential occupancy. • To the north of the site, service traffic (typically trucks) is guided to four different vertical loading docks, which connect truck deliveries from

Drone delivery logistics and services (at the roof) are organized around 4 vertical cores connecting truck deliveries/ restaurants and the roof drone distribution center: In this new concept for the US Postal Service, a medium-sized city such as Knoxville, which has 18 local post offices, would have 4-6 Drone Posts, located to allow a 10-mile radius for deliveries.

RECREATION SUTHERLAND ATHLETICS BY SHELBY MATTHEWS

The existing perimeter walls of the JFG/Riley Foods warehouses are retained, retrofitted with highly insulated materials. The roof structure is completely replaced with playful sloping roof planes and trusses, bringing in natural light, and providing open, higher interior spaces for athletics. In addition to gymnastics and cheerleading, indoor turf spaces will serve as soccer or football practice areas. The popular wall climbing facility of East Tennessee Outfitters is relocated here, and significantly expanded. Sutherland Athletics includes many common facilities for athletes, their families, and spectators. Site context

My site sits in the Reily Foods facility. For this project I am redesigning the building with a goal in sustainability. The current building sits in our new Recreation Zone where Tate, Sarah, Corley, and I all are designing. The site sits behind River Sports and its Climbing Center which provides opportunity to create a relationship with local businesses by expanding their current climbing center into a part of the program. The grid of photos to the right is a photo study from a site visit I went on earlier in th semester looking at material and context. The phot series below shows how the building has evolved from its original JFG Building into Reily Foods. The years of the photos from left to right are 1992, 2003, 2007, 2009, 2012, and 2019.

Program The Northern Building includes the programmatic elements of gymnatics, cheer-

leading & tumbling, seperate studios for dance and private lessons, as well as Program an upper deck above the studios for parents to watch and view their kids during practices. The other part of that building is a multipurpose space that can serve as an auditorium for gymnastics meets and cheer competitions as well as a

The Northern Building includes programmatic elements of gymnatics, cheerspace that can be utilized for birthday parties andthe parents night out type events.


Section a

Structure & Design The main design change from the original building is the system of roofs. This new system uses trusses and roof planes to help create shading of the courtyard from the way they cantilever as well as using clerestories as the primary source of light. During the beginning stages of my design I looked at the existing building and the regulating lines it created. This allowed me to create a concept for the outdoor courtyard which connects to Sutherland, River Sports, as well as connecting to paths that lead to the greenway. The courtyard includes a patio for dining in the cafe as well as an outdoor smaller concession stand/ building with picnic tables for those who would like to stay outdoors. The relationship between the buildings and the site as a whole were integral in making design decisions throughout the semester

INNOVATION MAKER CITY FABRICATION HUB BY AMBER ADAMS

In the East Tennessee Community Design Center community input poll for desirable uses along Sutherland, a makers’ space was the third highest response from local residents. Along with artist residential studio units on the third floor, the program includes spaces for teaching, stalls for selling items, exhibition halls, and a Makerspace for the artists to utilize. Collaboration was a major inspiration for the design, creating many fluid spaces that allow for conversations between artists and visitors.

Spaces for classrooms, hands-on learning, community spaces, and Virtual Reality spaces are just some of the programs that were included in this design. Four different categories of educational programs relate to Sutherland: construction, automotive, aviation, transportation. A pedestrian bridge connects Sutherland to the Greenway, intersecting with the third floor of the building. The lowest level includes extensive vehicular access for construction and automotive components. Programmatic Exploration Diagram

A WORD FROM OUR 2020 STUDENT CONTRIBUTORS “This semester I really enjoyed interacting with the community on Sutherland to get a better understanding of what people really need in relation to new architecture.” - Evy Vandivort

“I’ve

greatly enjoyed researching and designing this prefabricated apartment complex. I am excited to see how the street will change with the upcoming designs. I am also looking forward to see how my ideas and designs, along with my classmates, will impact the future of Sutherland Avenue.”

- Corley Kotler

“This semester I loved getting the opportunity to experiment with an area of Knoxville I had known my entire life, but have never gotten to fully appreciate. After this semester of research and observation, I feel much more prepared to look into solving real-world problems as an architect and designer, especially those close to home.” - Sarah Lloyd

54 Sutherland Avenue Enhancement Plan


“Although this semester had its challenges, I enjoyed being able to work with my classmates in more of a team dynamic. I also enjoyed being able to research and develop all of the factors that contribute to programming at the scale of a street.” - Shelbey Matthews

“One thing I learned from the Sutherland project was the importance of community and how people truly appreciate their built environment. I was very impressed by the amount of people dedicated to the change and improvement of Sutherland.”

- Amber Adams

“Overall, one of the most interesting parts of the semester was the community input aspect of the studio. Working with people who live or work on Sutherland gave this studio a chance to get to know the site in new ways and get a taste of what it would be like to work with a community in practice.” - Jessica Peters

ETCDC DESIGN CHARRETTE Guidelines and Site Study Areas

To engage more people in the design process, the ETCDC requested local architecture firms to develop teams to participate in an in-house design charrette. The ETCDC developed the charrette guidelines and parameters. The design teams considered two sites along Sutherland Avenue for development. One site is approximately 9.88 acres and is located between Sutherland Avenue and Division Street. The eastern edge is at the two adjacent properties next to the Sutherland Avenue Wrecker Services and the western edge is at Victory Street. The second study area is approximately 8.4 acres and is the AAA Cooper Transportation site located at 3235 Sutherland Avenue. The western edge is Third Creek and the eastern edge is Sutherland View Way.

The design teams were asked to include mixed-use developments with commercial components at Sutherland Avenue and low-to-moderate-income residential units. They considered site improvements such as: adding parks / parklets and greenway connections, the removal of blighted and vacant properties, adding areas for public art, areas for landscaping, and creating improved and enhanced streetscapes. All of these were within the parameters of Recode: Knoxville’s newly adopted zoning ordinance. The ETCDC wants to thank all the teams for the thoughtprovoking and exciting designs and all the participants’ willingness to volunteer countless hours for the betterment of the community. 3235 Sutherland Avenue
