Working with a design team headed by architects WRT Design (Philadelphia) and a very limited budget, C&VE helped transform the under-whelming parking structure into one of Philadelphia’s most remarkable make-overs of an existing structure. A new façade of metal projections supports a grid of dichroic glass panels creating a dynamic, ever-changing street level experience. The ceiling over the traffic lanes were fitted with thousands of rods tipped with LED lamps.
Philadelphia’s newest oasis is in the nation’s oldest and largest urban research park. Designed by ex;it in partnership with Andropogon Associates, the formerly nondescript pedestrian walkway within the University City Science Center is now a vibrant space that centers the 14-acre campus.
By applying painting, drawing, photography and printmaking to advanced design studios and printing practices, students will produce complex, unique and relevant surface-image projects through fabrication printing, including additive material deposition and subtraction-printing technologies.
The Franklin Institute is a popular education and science center in Philadelphia. Together with the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial which is housed in the building's pantheon-inspired rotunda, it is one of the city's top tourist attractions. The Memorial is the fee-free entry area to the building and the section that sees the most visitors.
