Urban Remix Design Charrette and Public Reveal

November 2nd, 2012  —  CharretteCommercial CorridorsDesign ServicesInfill PhiladelphiaPlacemaking

Join us on Friday, November 16 to envision how we can create a sustainable community at 46th and Market Streets.

The blocks surrounding SEPTA’s recently-renovated 46th Street Station are bursting with development—the relocated Youth Study Center, a branch of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and the new headquarters for the Philadelphia Police Department. But how can this emerging health and human services district truly serve a citywide constituency and also the residents and businesses next door?

There are two great ways to participate!

Design Charrette

Center for Architecture, 1218 Arch Street

Collaborate with a team of designers, public agencies, and neighborhood representatives to envision the district’s future. Combine urban design strategies like transit-oriented development, placemaking, and green infrastructure to create a vibrant new city and neighborhood destination. The charrette is part of Design on the Delaware 2012, a regional professional development conference for architects, landscape architects, urban planners, and other design professionals. REGISTER

Participants can earn 8 hours of continuing education credit. 8 AIA/CES (HSW/SD) CEHs; 8 AICP CM; 8 LA (HSW) CES; 8 CEU Eligible for PA Landscape Architects; 8 PDH Equivalent.
