Design Happens Here.
Recognized architects and designers present their work each semester as part of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Architecture and Design’s many activities. This includes the acclaimed Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Series, which is composed of exhibitions, presentations, and films. The Governor’s Chair Seminar Series, a new addition to the learning opportunities of the college, features nationally recognized leaders in urban design each month.
Exhibitions through the Ewing Gallery, Gallery 103 and Downtown Studio Gallery are also a part of the featured creative activities of the college. The exhibits at the Downtown Studio are a new component of the college’s outreach. Located in the heart of Knoxville on Gay Street, which was named “Top Ten Great Street” in America by the American Planning Association (APA) in 2012, the Downtown Studio will host First Friday events each month.
Additionally, we celebrate visiting critics, special speakers at our hooding graduation and convocation, and participants in our professional practice courses.
We are committed to being a resource to the professional design communities. Attending or viewing the lectures can contribute toward maintaining and gaining architecture licensure. Professionals in the design fields are eligible to receive continuing education credits from the AIA, ASLA, IIDA and ASID. Students may receive supplemental experience hours in the Intern Development Program (IDP) of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).
