Design Staff , East Tennessee Community Design Center in Knoxville

Envision. Inspire. Improve. Welcome to The East Tennessee Community Design Center

PRESENTED ON AUG 16, 2018
IN KNOXVILLE @ VOL 28
Non-profits are not typically thought of as resources for architecture, design, and
planning services. Dustin Durham is here to change that mentality. He works for The East Tennessee Community Design Center, a local non-profit that has been around since 1970 with the sole purpose of making East Tennessee a better place through design. He runs through who they are, how they operate, and shows examples of a few of the 1,000+ projects they have designed in our region over the previous fifty years.

Design-Build Education: Creating a New Education Center for Beardsley Community Farm

BY JENNIFER AKERMAN
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 06, 2015

Presented with Bud Archer and Bailey Green. 

Students and faculty from the University of Tennessee’s College of Architecture and Design will present on the benefits of design-build education as illustrated by an innovative new building being created for Beardsley Community Farm in Knoxville—a non-profit urban demonstration farm promoting food security and sustainable agriculture. Design-build education through architectural design courses at UT enabled making a building that reinforces Beardsley’s mission. The new structure will operate as a teaching tool helping farm staff and volunteers more effectively engage the public about the benefits of local sustainable farming. It also creates significant public spaces for the benefit of the community at large.
