Cody Grooms recently joined the Red Chair family as a student intern architect! Cody is pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture from The University of Tennessee, and will be starting his fifth, undergraduate year this fall. Cody also extended his academic career in the summer of 2016 by attending Aalto University’s School of Architecture in Helsinki, Finland. His professional career has included time with Perkins+Will in their New York office and a local Design+Think team in Knoxville.
A native of Newport in rural East Tennessee, and true to his roots, his passion lies with enriching the culture and communities of TN by design and story-telling. With a driven work ethic, enthusiastic personality, and desire to achieve beautiful design, Cody has received many honors and awards such as selection for the Governor’s Chair Studio, The Museum of Finnish Architecture, and the 58th Presidential Inauguration.
His pursuit of excellence through design, well-rounded skill set, and continuing achievements are a welcomed addition to redChair:architects.
