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

BY DUSTIN DURHAM
@ VOL 28 ON AUG 16, 2018

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.
