The highly anticipated MAX_min design competition—a unique annual event that gives students from all three schools (and this year also students from Graphic Design) the chance to design together in teams–launches Jan. 11, 5:30 p.m., in the atrium.  Students will be grouped into teams earlier in the day (watch for your e-mail), and at the launch, you will meet your team, eat pizza, receive the competition brief and start strategizing for an intense five days of design thinking, all for a cash prize and bragging rights.

Designs are due by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 16.  Upload instructions will be provided at the launch.

Established in honor of the School of Architecture’s former director, Max Robinson, the MAX_minimum Design Competition is a recurring annual competition meant to encourage the greatest impact on the design environment with the least possible means. The aim of the student projects is to leverage the potential of design thinking to creatively impact the College of Architecture and Design, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the state of Tennessee. First amongst the project goals, however, is the development of conceptual and pragmatic design excellence within the College of Architecture and Design’s student body.
