On Friday, September 18th, over 50 parking spaces on Philly streets were converted by volunteer teams into people-friendly mini parks (parklets) as part of the 2015 PARK(ing) Day Philadelphia festival.
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Design Enthusiasts,
Ever wonder how Philadelphia became the city it is today?
The Center for Architecture's engaging 10-part lecture series, Building Philadelphia, investigates the social, political, economic, and design trends that contributed to Philadelphia's development. Each talk is led by renowned local architects, urban planners, archaeologists, and historians; and cover topics including major urban planning projects, like the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Society Hill, Philadelphia's impressive palette of architectural styles, and the city's immigrant history.
Do you want to see what Philadelphia's best and brightest design and architecture students have been up to? Join us at the Center for Architecture tomorrow, February 12th from 5:30-7:30pm, for an opening reception celebrating Degrees of Design.
