A Philadelphia School Story: A Half–Century Legacy of Planning & Design Practice
This exhibit looks back at the professional careers of some of the students who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s architecture and landscape architecture programs in the mid-1960’s, during the hey-day of Penn’s programs in these fields. At the time, Penn’s fame was such that the professional journal Progressive Architecture devoted an entire issue in 1961 to “The Philadelphia School,” highlighting the work of Penn’s architecture faculty and students. The exhibit provides an overview of the contributions of graduates of the school’s class of 1965 as well as the evolution of the planning and design professions over the past 50 years.
