I describe the design of the Thirty Meter Telescope, a project to build a ground-based thirty-meter telescope. The partners include the University of California, Caltech, the Association of Canadian Universities for Research in Astronomy (ACURA), and NSF. The Project is currently in the design and development phase and will be ready for a 2009 construction start.
