The Fair


In this special exhibit curated by the University of Tennessee Knoxville College of Architecture and Design, the potential of university/industry partnerships to anticipate change and envision the future––the future of cities, the future of transportation, and the future of design education is explored.

Do we need crises to drive change? Or can we use the transformative power of technology, the innovative force of design, and the potency of multi-disciplinary collaboration to disrupt the status quo? Can new tools, new thinking, and novel partnerships pave the way to a better, more human-centered future?
