Designing Futures for Equitable Neighborhoods in Philadelphia
In this workshop, we will collaboratively and collectively imagine multiple possible futures for a selected set of neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Then we will develop various spectra of possibilities and use the strategic design and scenario planning process to map a range of combinations that could plausibly arise in Philadelphia neighborhoods. Top of mind will be conditions that are equitable, adaptive and representative of Philadelphia’s cultural, physical and socio-economic legacy.
Meet our Facilitators:
  • Natalie Nixon is a design strategist and a hybrid thinker. At her consultancy, Figure 8 Thinking, LLC, Natalie helps organizations accelerate innovation and growth by developing meaningful strategy through design thinking and ethnographic research.

Horace Trumbauer Walking Tour
Horace Trumbauer was Philadelphia’s most prolific architect, whose work can be found across the United States. He is best known, perhaps, for his New York and Newport Gilded Age mansions. In Philadelphia, however, his firm also designed a large number of institutional buildings as well as private residences. Please join the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Philadelphia and Jim Mundy, Director of Education and Programming for the Union League of Philadelphia, for a walking tour that explores Trumbauer-designed buildings that have housed Philadelphia’s premier cultural and social institutions over the past century.
The tour will begin at the Union League of Philadelphia, where we will learn about the exterior and interior spaces of this landmark institution. Our tour will then proceed through Center City to include such buildings as the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the Racquet Club, the original Ritz Carlton hotel, the St. James apartment house, the Widener Building, the YMCA, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and then through the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood to see examples of Trumbauer’s domestic architecture. The tour will end at Rittenhouse Square.
Jim Mundy is the Director of Education and Programming for the Foundations of the Union League of Philadelphia. He is an alumnus of The Attingham Summer School for the Study of British Houses and Collections and is presently the President of The Woodlands Cemetery Company and the Woodlands Trust for Historic Preservation. Jim has also given architecture tours for the Preservation Alliance.
The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the practice and appreciation of the classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts. We fulfill this mission through education, publications, awards, and advocacy, partnering with diverse organizations throughout the region.

We’ve finished writing Philadelphia2035, the City’s official vision for every part of the City! It took thousands of Philadelphians and partners to make it happen and we want to celebrate with you.
Together we have created plans to address:
  • Housing everyone can afford
  • Quality public transportation
  • Streets safe for walking, driving, and biking
  • Jobs and shops
  • Parks within a 10-minute walk
  • Healthy food options
  • Historic buildings that are saved and reused
In other words, Philadelphia2035 is the plan for Philadelphia to THRIVE, CONNECT, and RENEW, which we are already hard at work putting into action.
Finishing the written plans is a huge milestone, please join us as we thank all of you who made it possible!

Home: Affordable Housing + Cooperative Living Symposium
Following the model of Creative Reaction Lab’s Equity-Centered Community Design Field Guide, Writers Room and Drexel Smart House are embarking on a year-long design process for a writers house—a place that would provide not just room for public programming but a cooperative living home for Drexel students and community residents. The goal is to catalyze other intergenerational houses nearby, creating a network of homeowners and student tenants whose shared interest in writing/storytelling forms the foundation for meaningful cohabitation.
Join us as we begin with the history of development in the Mantua and Powelton neighborhoods as told by our neighbors: a conversation with the Mantua Civic Association, Mount Vernon Manor, People’s Emergency Center, Powelton Village Civic Association, and the Department of History
This event is the first in a series of three public talks + guided writing workshops. (Coffee + lunch provided.) Free, registration required.
