University of Tennessee, Fred D. Brown, Jr. Residence Hall
Cope Architecture was the lead designer in a joint venture to create the first new UT student residence hall on the UT Knoxville campus since 1967. The building was designed for 700 students and contains 250,000 square feet of space on 7 floors. It was designed to meet the State of Tennessee Sustainability Design Guidelines. Named in honor of the longtime staff member who created the Office of Diversity Programs in the College of Engineering, Fred D.
