Knoxville Battlefield Loop

In 2016 we were asked to provide a comprehensive framework for the future development of a collection of significant cultural and historical sites located just 2 miles from downtown Knoxville defined as the Battlefield Loop. Working with consultant PORT Urbanism the team completed a study which suggested connections between a number of isolated sites by expanding the boundaries of the Loop to incorporate a number of relics of Knoxville’s industrial past which tell an important story of Knoxville’s early role as a manufacturing leader in the post-civil war New South.
