    I am happy to announce that our team has secured a $75000 grant as part of Phase II of the EPA's P3 Sustainable Design Competition!

    Hopefully some of these photos will give everyone a better idea about the vague posts I have been leaving over the past few months.

    These were taken during the EPA p3 exhibition last weekend in Washington DC. We were judged over two days and were selected (along with 5 other entries) to move forward with our project.

    Our proposal for Phase II: construct the first phase of the project as a demonstration model in Norris, TN next spring as a Design|build studio.

About this Blog

School blog of BArch student Samuel Mortimer kept from 2008 - 2011. Mostly late-night musings of the studio, but with an emphasis of the events of the College of Architecture and Design and University of Tennessee on the whole. Later blogs discuss participation in the New Norris House project, as both a student and researcher hired after graduation.
