Thanks to all who attended the third, and final, installment of our Spring 2013 Lecture Series, “Creating with Constraints” last night. It was the highest attendance we’ve had to date!
Leah Murphy and Andrew Goldblatt discussed how two former railway lines, a stretch of fifty city blocks in Philadelphia, can be transformed into a future green space. Representing Friends of the Rail Park (formerly known as VIADUCTgreene), Murphy and Goldblatt unveiled their plans for the first time to the public and discussed the internal and external constraints surrounding the project. The lecture ended with an outstanding Q&A session and comments from the crowd.
