March 1: 2018 Edmund N. Bacon Awards + Talk Honoring Enrique Peñalosa
Join the Center for Design and Architecture in honoring Enrique Peñalosa and the student winners of the 2018 Better Philadelphia Challenge. Enrique Peñalosa was selected to receive the 2018 Edmund N. Bacon Award because of the world-wide influence his pioneering initiatives as mayor of Bogotá, Colombia have had on public transportation, infrastructure investment, and public space, including on cities such as Philadelphia and New York City.
The 2018 Better Philadelphia Challenge coincides with the 100th anniversary of Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This year’s challenge, Philadelphia’s Next ‘Park+Way’ asked student teams to share their grand vision of what a new ‘Parkway’ could be in a dense and developed 21st century city and how Philadelphia’s existing natural and cultural resources could be better linked with their neighboring communities. Come meet the winning teams and see their visions for the next great Philadelphia Parkway.
The ceremony will be followed by a coffee + dessert reception for all in attendance.
