University of Memphis Department of Architecture faculty and architects from AIA Memphis provide an introduction to architectural and structural concepts, model building and freehand drawing. Visit Memphis architecture firms, tour area building projects and hear from the architects who imagined them. Work to solve design puzzles, learn about sustainable construction, how buildings contribute to 40% of all carbon emissions and small incremental steps each of us can take to help resolve the climate crisis.
