Architecture Students Creating Design Plans to Revitalize Downtown Lenoir City

Tennessee Today

Eleven UT architecture students spent the fall semester working on four projects to assist Lenoir City with its downtown revitalization efforts.

The students were part of a class taught by Tricia Stuth, an associate professor of architecture in UT’s College of Architecture and Design.

The senior-level students worked with faculty and students from various disciplines including hotel, restaurant, and tourism management; advertising and public relations; economics; and Spanish on projects for Lenoir City as part of this year’s Smart Communities Initiative.

The Smart Communities Initiative, overseen by UT’s Office of Service-Learning, pairs faculty and students with Tennessee cities, counties, special districts, and other government organizations to engage in real-world problem solving. SCI is part of the university’s Experience Learning initiative, which stresses hands-on learning to bring classroom lessons to life.
