UT Camp For Architecture and Design

Knoxville (WVLT) -- Today, UT's College of Architecture and Design finished up its annual summer camp.

40 high school students from across the nation presented their projects to professors from the college.

Their final assignment was to design a building that would fit in with the natural environment along the Tennessee River.

"We hope some of the students want to pursue design in the future but regardless what they choose to do for a university education, they will be better informed about design and how it affects their communities around them," said Professor Tricia Stuth of the College of Architecture and Design.

Over the last week, the students lived in students dorms and learned about design with the help of UT professors.

Topics included history, technology and ecology of design.

The program was sponsored by several architecture firms who donated scholarships for students.
