MID&C Program Working in Chattanooga

MID&C students were invited back to Chattanooga by the Urban Design Forum to develop a vision for a Chattanooga Industrial Heritage Center. The proposed center will celebrate Chattanooga’s industrial history, as well as its continued industrial development that balances traditional manufacturing with high-tech startups and a strong ethic of sustainability and community. MID&C students explored two sites along the proposed north and south extensions to Chattanooga’s River Walk. Industrial Heritage Center projects will combine newly constructed elements with re-use of existing structures. They presented their final designs for the Chattanooga Industrial Heritage Center to a group of architects, planners, and community stakeholders on April 26.
