Design SLAM! Knoxville is a fast-paced, live competition focused on design thinking, urban design and presentation. Each year, the event pits teams of Knoxville area designers against one another to solve a local design challenge. This year the competition will focus on an area of intervention and redevelopment in on Sutherland Avenue in conjunction with the Community Collaborative.
Teams consisting of makers, architectural designers and allied professionals will be given 1.5 hours to develop and present a solution to the audience and a panel of judges. The People’s Choice – selected by popular vote during the event – and an overall winner will be presented with custom fabricated trophies.
We encourage anyone interested in design and urban planning to come grab a beer, and root for your favorite team.
