Klai Juba Lecture - A New Norris HouseWhen: Feb. 25, 2013, 5:30pm - 6:45pm
Office/Remote Location: Downtown Project Construction Zone - 107 S. 7th Street, 89101
The Klai Juba Lecture Series and the Downtown Project invites you to a talk given by Tricia Stuth, AIA. Ms. Stuth will speak about 'Tools of Engagement,' a design studio that examined the technical, social, regulatory and aesthetic issues associated with off-site fabrication of urban in-fill housing for post-war neighborhoods. The studio established a relationship with Clayton Homes - a leading producer of manufactured/modular homes - and a pedagogical model for industry, community, and academic partnership. Ms. Stuth and Professor Robert French led an interdisciplinary team of students in the design of a New Norris House, the outcome of which is the manufacture of a prototypical home for the New Deal Town of Norris - one of the nation's first planned communities developed by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The New Norris House is funded in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a Winner of the P3: People, Prosperity, Planet Annual Student Design Competition (2009).
This lecture is free and open to the public.
