We are excited that the statewide meeting for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) will be held in Chattanooga this July! Part of the conference will include the Urban Design Workshop: Glass Street Revitalization.

The Urban Design Workshops: Glass Street Revitalization will focus on visitors and locals working together in charettes – tapping directly into the revitalization efforts on Glass Street.

Teams with special guest facilitators are comprised of conference attendees and individuals with a diverse set of backgrounds and professional expertise, local and regional knowledge. The goal for this two-part event is to inspire people – both designers and the general public – and bring them together around a platform to exchange knowledge and produce actionable ideas.

We will keep you posted with progress on this project. Right now, we are looking for volunteers willing to join teams- community members, municipal representatives, local experts, and architects are needed. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, July 25th from 8:30- 12.
