Penn & the Making of University City

September 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
40th and Baltimore, northeast corner, 3940 Baltimore Ave.
Philadelphia, PA United States

Penn's leafy campus looks like its been there since the school’s founding, but much of it is a recent creation. This tour will explore how Penn used the powerful mechanisms of urban renewal created after World War II to acquire land and fund new construction for the rapidly growing university. But let’s not forget the architecture! Penn’s campus features some of Philly’s most magnificent buildings, including Frank Furness's Fisher Fine Arts Library, College Hall and the Quadrangle Dormitories.
