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

@ 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.

College Radio: Alive and Kickin'

@ VOL 23 ON MAY 11, 2017

Julianna Tullos gives an in-depth look at Knoxville's only terrestrial college radio station, WUTK, and discusses that not all radio is created equal. While working at the University of Tennessee college radio station, WUTK, in college in 2005, Julianna grew to appreciate the eclectic environment of radio, and odd-balls that fill it. Over a decade later, college radio is still just as relevent and important, providing a creative outlet, promoting community awareness, and providing a platform of expression for students and Knoxvillians.
