The Jazzy Buildings in downtown Chattanooga.

Every year, students in a class here on our campus - the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - focus their senior thesis projects on a historic building.

This year, the students in UTC’s Interior Architecture and Design program revisited The Jazzy Buildings - stretching from Market to Broad Streets - in partnership with Preserve Chattanooga, the historic preservation nonprofit in this city.

Prof. Jessica Etheredge is the program’s director.

Todd Morgan is executive director of Preserve Chattanooga.

I spoke with them and Emily Ward, a student in the Interior Architecture program - shortly before she graduated from UTC.
