Waterfront design briefing package

Now that principles (see attached PDF) for development have been established, a team of world-class designers is set to work in conjunction with representatives from the City Planning Commission and civic leaders to develop the first concepts for the 7 miles project area.  These first drawings and sketches will lay the groundwork for the 6 month design phase of the project.  A team of local, national and international designers is convening in Philadelphia to develop this preliminary vision in charette style, which is a messy but productive way to combine architects and planners’ visions into a cohesive whole.  Please refer to the attached PDF in order to get an overview of the background knowledge needed to think constructively about waterfront design solutions.
