On Aug. 23, visitors to the opening of Exhibit Columbus will be the first to see the 30-foot-tall fiber-composite tower designed and built by faculty and students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Architecture and Design.
The tower, called UTK Filament Tower, will be officially opened on Aug. 23-24, after more than seven months of construction.
Opening weekend for Exhibit Columbus includes Exhibition Conversations, which provide a platform for designers to express the intentions of their projects. Prado will speak about Filament Tower on Friday, Aug. 23, 6:25 p.m., at North Christian Church. The conversations are free and open to the public.
