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.

It also creates significant public spaces for the benefit of the community at large.
