Campus Spatial Diagram and Conceptual Preliminary Master Plan

Campus Spatial Diagram

The Campus Spatial Diagram was developed during the Conceptual Preliminary Master Plan stage of the master planning process. It illustrates the fundamental principles of the Preliminary Master Plan. The Campus Spatial Diagram allows planners to consider relationships without focusing on specific details or the exact location of elements. The diagram is a tool used to gain consensus on the overall direction of the Master Plan and articulate the relationships between component parts of campus.

The Campus Spatial Diagram illustrates the following conceptual assumptions that in turn, addressed the primary planning issues identified in the Plan.

Circulation and Wayfinding:

Parking:

Utilities and Infrastructure:

Context and Community:

Building Opportunities:

Arboretum:

Campus Entry:

Sustainability:

Pedestrian and Site Specific Studies:

This diagram facilitated comments and feedback about the general layout and interconnectedness of individual elements on the UW–Green Bay Campus.

Conceptual Preliminary Master Plan

The Conceptual Preliminary Master Plan was guided by detailed feedback from the conceptual alternatives stage in the master planning process. The challenge was to use feedback generated from presentation of three conceptual alternatives and effectively synthesize that input into one cohesive plan. The resulting Conceptual Preliminary Master Plan was reviewed by the Master Plan Steering Committee and presented to the campus through a series of workshops on campus in October, 2004.

These assumptions target all key aspects of the primary planning issues as outlined in the Conceptual Preliminary Plan.

Much of the discussion and feedback during the conceptual preliminary Master Plan stage centered on the removal of a section of the concourse to open up the campus quad as the final destination of the arrival sequence. Comments both supporting and opposing the removal were heard. Participants were encouraged to visit the site and imagine the difference in character and human scale the pro-posed change would create.

A second discussion centered on alignment of the Inner Loop Road to the east or west of the Kress Events Center. The fundamental decision referred back to the Campus Spatial Diagram and it was decided that as a non-academic building, the sports complex could be located outside of the academic core and not be connected by the concourse system.

Feedback from this stage included a general acceptance of the other primary planning elements and relationships contained within the evolving Master Plan.

Conceptual Master Plan

Conceptual Master Plan

Based on comments and feedback from participants regarding the three conceptual alternatives, a single concept was developed. This concept support the idea of the Inner Load Road and explores elements from all three alternatives. Click image for a more detailed version.
