This event is organized and presented by DocomomoUS-Greater Philadelphia.


Join DocomomoPHL for a walking tour of the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood where we’ll explore some of the lesser known Modern architectural examples. Penn Architectural Archives Curator, Bill Whitaker will lead us to see a number of architectural gems, both modern and its earlier forms.  Highlights include works by Louis Kahn, George Howe, and Harry Sternfeld, from the 1920s to the 1970s, as well as earlier works by Frank Furness and Wilson Eyre that influenced modern architecture. The tour will end at Rittenhouse Square.

Meet at S. 24th and Pine Street, southwest corner of Fitler Square
