Join us for an off the record conversation with Marilyn Jordan Taylor on thinking big and being a trailblazer for women in architecture. Marilyn is a former Dean of Architecture and Urban Design and current professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. She is recognized worldwide as a thought leader in urban design, as well as a pioneer in the fields of architecture, planning, and construction. Her global stature is complemented by her down-to-earth demeanor and proven ability to interact easily with constituencies across communities, government, industry, and academia, both locally and internationally. She is a leader who exudes not only intellectual breadth, but also deep enthusiasm and compassion in her dedication to enhancing the vitality of urban communities through design.
Marilyn will be interviewed by Danielle DiLeo Kim, an architect and urban designer whose broad career has included the realization of institutional and cultural buildings, citywide and campus master plans, and engagement processes for community and high-level stakeholders in and around the Philadelphia region for over twenty years. Danielle managed the creation of the city’s first comprehensive plan since 1960, Philadelphia2035, as well as PIDC’s long-range development plan for the Lower Schuylkill. She’s currently coordinating a national campus plan in Philadelphia for the 250th anniversary of the country in 2026.
ULI Philadelphia invites you to participate in a candid discussion between two successful and storied leaders in architecture at an intimate cocktail reception. Hosted by the ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative.
