Philadelphia is a City by Design. The legacy and design excellence of the planning and architecture community here in Philadelphia has been admired and emulated around the world. This exhibit highlights the great ideas from our past that designers, politicians, and citizens brought to fruition, to create the City we know and love today. Throughout the past 150 years, our City has seen many peaks and valleys and our built environment reflects that. As Philadelphia has entered another period of growth and expansion, challenges remain on how to design and build a city that is sustainable and equitable. Collaboration and expanded inclusion is needed more today than it was 150 years ago, as our City of Brotherly Love faces our challenges of today and tomorrow.
