University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism

BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19 ON MAY 12, 2016

What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.

Achieving Sustainability by Adaptive Reuse

BY FREDERIC DALBIN
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 15, 2016

Projections show that 50% of architectural design in the next 20+ years and beyond will be for renovating and re-purposing existing buildings.  This represents an historic opportunity for the architecture and building community to reverse the most significant crisis of modern time:  energy depletion and environmental degradation.  Fred Dalbin demonstrate approaches and practices for conservation and adaptive re-use of the existing built environment through projects completed by this firm.
