As the School District of Philadelphia closes schools throughout Philadelphia, communities are confronting a painful reality. How can these longstanding neighborhood icons be reused—temporarily and for the long haul?

Center for Architecture, 1216 Arch Street

Be part of a collaborative group of designers, community members, public agencies, and community development specialists envisioning reuse options for two vacant schools—Old Frances Willard School in Kensington and M. Hall Stanton School in Lower North Philadelphia. Just a few spaces left!
