K-25 Historic Site Preservation
Located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the
K-25 site once contained the world’s largest industrial plant, which was instrumental during World War II as part of the Manhattan Project. Constructed and operated in complete secrecy, thousands of people worked 24/7 to produce the uranium for the first Atomic Bomb. Upon completion, the site will include the original K-25 footprint with wayside exhibits, a Viewing Tower, a deconstructed representation of K-25, in addition to a History Center. Working with Knoxville architects Smee+Busby, Hilferty is designing the exihbits for all.
