Recent Work: CDC Updates & Award

We have now completed three projects for Philadelphia's Community Design Collaborative since 2014, including two projects last year that earned us their Rookie of the Year award!

Our first project was for the Variety Club of Philadelphia, a wonderful organization catering to children and youth with physical and developmental disabilities. We were charged with assessing their Widener Indoor Sports Pavilion building, which has been partially closed for several years. It is a striking building with a strong Louis Kahn design influence:

Our other project with the Frankford Avenue Streetscape Project for the Frankford Community Development Corporation. Our work focused on the 4600 block of Frankford where multiple streets intersect and the Arrott Transportation Center is located:
