2022 Community Collaborative Charrette Starts January 24th!


An example of charrette sketches

We will be conducting our 2022 Community Collaborative Design Charrette from Monday, January 24th through Thursday, February 24th for participating architecture firms and teams of interested designers.

The Community Collaborative is a focused effort between organizations on the challenges facing our local communities. The goal of the Collaborative is to highlight an area’s history, bring awareness to its future potential, and promote sustainable growth and economic development. Each year a focus area or issue is established, community input is gathered, and multiple studies and efforts are performed. The charrette study area for 2022 is a large parcel of city-owned land along Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue in East Knoxville.

Local architecture firms are encouraged to participate. Independent architects, intern architects, and other designers or interested citizens who would also like to take part will be able to join either with participating firms or on teams created by the ETCDC. Guidelines, additional information, and submission requirements will be provided at the start of the charrette on the morning of Monday, January 24th.  

The deadline for submissions Thursday, February 24th, 2022 at 5pm. 

Each of the submittals will be published in detail in a four page spread in our 2022 Collaborative booklet, which participating teams will receive a physical copy of upon printing.

For this endeavor, participants will receive 6 HSW Continuing Education credits from the AIA.

If interested, please respond before Friday, January 21st to either:
