Woodwise Urban Designs and Glass House Collective

This is a Project. It was designed by Zachary Reynolds and founded by Katherine Currin, Garth Brown and Teal Thibaud. It is dated 2012–present.

East Chattanooga’s Glass Street renewal is proof that resident-inspired, cumulative, well-placed, creative, and affordable interventions can make a difference. The nonprofit Glass House Collective organized a series of neighborhood events, from a giant block party to urban-design workshops with neighbors, architects, designers, and entrepreneurs generating a set of street revitalization ideas that are rooted in place; they were later adopted by the city. Woodwise Urban Designs now works in the neighborhood, designing and manufacturing high-quality, long-lasting environmentally sustainable products.
