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.
