PennPraxis at Ten: Come Celebrate!

PennPraxis turned 10 this year. 

To mark the occasion we are hosting a celebratory breakfast and panel discussion on May 12, 2012, from 9:00 to 11:30 AM at the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania.  The event is free and open to the public.  You can sign up here.  Seating is limited so please sign up now if you haven’t already done so.

To help us think about what the next ten years might hold for PennPraxis, we have invited a distinguished panel to discuss:  PennPraxis at Ten:  Where Should We Go and How Should We Grow?

PennDesign Dean Marilyn Jordan Taylor and I will be joined by:

Alex Krieger, professor in practice, Graduate School of Design Harvard University, and, principal, Chan Krieger NBBJ
Ken Greenberg, principal, Greenberg Consultants, and former director of urban design and architecture, City of Toronto
Inga Safforn, architecture critic, Philadelphia Inquirer, and current Loeb Fellow, Harvard University

PennPraxis has been honored to be part of the conversation about Philadelphia’s built environment over the past decade.  From the Civic Vision for the Central Delaware through Green2015: An Action Plan for the First 500 Acres, we have been privileged to participate in a rich public discussion about what a 21st century Philadelphia looks like and how she responds to environmental challenges, employs quality urban design to support economic development and addresses issues of access and equity in the built environment.  Click here for front-page coverage about PennPraxis’ anniversary in the current issue ofThe Architect’s Newspaper.

Join us on May 12 as we look ahead.  Help us think about how we might best have an impact over the next decade.  If you are unable to sign up on-line, please contact Valerie Beulah or 215-573-8720.

We look forward to seeing you on the 12th.

Executive Director
