Norris Dam and powerhouse. Elevator penthouse atop dam which also serves as flagpole base. Elevator serves various levels of operating machinery inside dam. Top of dam is developed as roadway with sidewalks. Note handrail projecting toward sidewalk and toe space in parapet to make enjoyment of view more comfortable. Handrail brackets are hollow and contain lights which illuminate the roadway but avoid glare by the use of reflectors and directional lenses

Guntersville Dam and powerhouse. Generator hall. Roof is supported by trusses with arched bottom chords, concealed by ceiling made up of asbestos boards on steel furring. Ceiling also serves as insulation and plenum chamber and permits recessing of highbay reflectors which are louvered at bottom to eliminate glare. These reflectors furnish the main working light and throw the generators upon which they are concentrated into strong relief; general illumination of the space comes from indirect reflectors concealed behind the crane relief and turned towards the ceiling. Floor is ceramic tile; wall, glazed structural tile up to ceiling, but of lighter color above crane rail

Pickwick Dam. Cranes and other engineering features are designed with same care as architectural feaatures. This one, in back of generator hall, serves for the transfer of heavy equipment from barges into the assembly and repair space

Another view of Cove Lake State Park with the inn in the foreground and some of the tourists' cabins in the back. Located on a main highway, both a restaurant and overnight cabins fill an important need of the tourist traffic which, in turn, is important to the valley. In addition, it has become a favorite point for local recreation. The standards of space layout, finish, furnishings, and service have performed as models for this area of the valley

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. Land side entrance to Chickamauga Powerhouse. Visitors and employees enter from the parking space which corresponds to the top level of the generating plant. Once inside, the almost continuous glass wall between the reception room and the generating hall gives the magnificent view of generators deep below. Signs in front are temporary, prohibiting access for the duration of the war. Note gantry cranes at right which operate spillway gates and are also used for the transfer of heavy equipment parts from rail, barge, or truck to the powerhouse

Wheeler Dam and powerhouse. General view showing four generators of the semi-outdoor type installed. Space is left for addition of four more. Navigation lock in distance, bulkhead section, spillway and power plant following left to right. Terrace in front of top story of control buildings for visitors' inspection of the project

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. View of generator hall, looking towards reception room end. Upper row of three large windows is overlook for reception room. Three windows beneath are those of control room (compare with K 2313). Balcony for communication and view in front of control room windows. Roof is carried by rigid steel arches which spring from crane rail level; steel purlins, exposed precast concrete slab. Windows of hall are glass brick for insulation. Translucent plastic discs suspended from standard highboy lighting units conceal view or direct reflection of filaments and reflect spill light onto ceiling, thus generally brightening the space. Floor is ceramic tile; walls, glazed structural tile up to crame rail, exposed concrete above

This is a partial view of the living room showing the dinette corner with its collapsible table and chairs. The other end of the living room, not shown here, contains a studio couch which sleeps two. In addition, the trailer house contains a fully equipped kitchenette, a bedroom with built-in double bed and a large amount of storage space, and a bathroom. Walls are of plywood in natural finish, ceiling is plywood painted white, floor is plywood covered with inlaid linoleum. The square panel in the center of the ceiling is a ventilator which can be cranked open in summer. All windows are of the sliding type to occupy minimum space and to minimize the use of critical hardware

This structure is fairly typical of the kind of accomodations provided for the recreation of unmarried TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) construction employees of both sexes. Whenever possible such structures are later converted to fill permanent needs of the region. During the construction of Norris Dam, the structure included a large lounge, a refreshment and lunch space, and auditorium with stage and projection room, capable of accomodating 300, library and reading room, barber and beauty shop, restrooms, administrative office and committee or lecture rooms. The auditorium was converted into a gymnasium. It now serves as a community building for the permanent residents of the town of Norris, a regular restaurant having replaced the refreshment room, while the county art center has been installed in place of the library, and the offices, display room, and storage room of the handicraft cooperative have taken up the space formerly occupied by the barber and beauty shop

Dams under construction. Kentucky Dam, close to the mouth of the Tennessee River, will be one of the biggest projects of the Authority and will back the water up for a distance of 185 miles. It will be completed in 1944. This photograph shows a partial view of the lock operation building, with the commanding officer's work space, shaped somewhat like a control cabin in the foreground on the second floor. The near wing contains visitors' rest rooms while the lock switchboard is in the far wing, entered through the door in the foreground of the picture. Visitors are admitted to the various roof levels to watch the locking operation

Guntersville Dam and powerhouse. View of entrance end of generator hall from generator floor. Raised platform at end serves as delivery and assembly space for machinery, also as visitors' overlook. Machine repair and electrical shops are located under platform. Offices in downstream wing are served by open corridor, beginning of which is seen on upper floor to the right of the picture. Directly below, control room which can be inspected from entrance platform. Windows of generator hall along sides are of glass brick (as at Chickamauga, also) for heat insulation and easier maintenance

Dams under construction. The operation building for the navigation lock at Watts Bar has been completed ahead of the rest of the project to permit the passage of river transport during construction. The left wing contains control machinery on the first floor and the commanding officer's work space on the second. The center of the upper level is a sheltered observation space for visitors who are received and accommodated in the right wing of the structure, and for access to the right end of the roof. All lock operation buildings are designed for maximum view of the lock chamber and the up- and downriver approaches by the operators and the public

Demountable employee housing.This brand new type of housing accommodation was developed through several intermediate steps and experiments in prefabrication, in answer to the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority's) need for housing for temporary use on construction projects in remote localities. The scheme permits fabrication at a distance from the job (about 600 miles in this instance), thus reducing dependence on overtaxed accommodations at the construction project. After completion of the project, the demountable housing is quickly removed elsewhere. Some of the earlier TVA demountables have been moved three times from project to project. The design shown here is particularly light in weight due to full use of the recently developed stressed-skin system of plywood construction. It is built largely of weatherproof plywood. The large bay across the front greatly enhances the size of the living room. The trailer houses, on the basis of experience to date, are entirely competitive in cost with traditionally constructed housing of the same floor area. On account of being constructed in shops rather than in the field, they are produced with much closer tolerances, considerably better finish, and with equipment designed and constructed with greater detail and superior utilization of space

Visitors' building on the east abutment of Norris Dam constructed of cinder concrete blocks with stucco finish. Guard booth under center canopy controls central hall of structure and project parking space in front; also has view of terrace on opposite side. Wings house refreshment counter, a store of the cooperative merchandising organization for local handicraft products and in the windowless extremities of the wing, visitors' toilets

This is a partial view of the living room showing the dinette corner with its collapsible table and chairs. The other end of the living room, not shown here, contains a studio couch which sleeps two. In addition, the trailer house contains a fully equipped kitchenette, a bedroom with built-in double bed and a large amount of storage space, and a bathroom. Walls are of plywood in natural finish, ceiling is plywood painted white, floor is plywood covered with inlaid linoleum. The square panel in the center of the ceiling is a ventilator which can be cranked open in summer. All windows are of the sliding type to occupy minimum space and to minimize the use of critical hardware

Visitors' overlook building at Kentucky Dam. This structure is in the form of an open shed because the other functions of TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) visitors' buildings being accommodated in the nearby construction village, there was need for shelter only at this point. Since the project is in a hot climate, ample ventilation is promoted by the open front, a balustrade height opening toward the back underneath the display and grilles to ventilate the roof space. Most of the displays are arranged as transparencies, with natural illumination during the day, and with floodlights used as substitutes during the night
