Welcome to the new Center for Architecture and Design Website!

19 May 2022
Written by Rebecca Johnson

We are very pleased to launch our new Center for Architecture and Design website and online community.  As many of you know, the Center for Architecture and Design is a nonprofit organization that was created to educate and engage the general public in all things architecture and design. What many of you may not know, is that since 2017 the Center has been focused on streamlining our programming to maximize our impact on the City of Philadelphia. We gave some of our legacy programs to the Preservation Alliance (our Building Philadelphia Lecture Series and our Emergence of a Modern Metropolis) in order to focus on re-invigorating our K-12 educational programming. Thankfully the Preservation Alliance has made those programs more successful, bringing them to more people than we ever did!  For the Center, that focus enabled us to invest resources into our K-12 Programming.  

Today, we are thrilled to share our expanded Architecture and Design Education programs as part of our new Center website launch.  This new website is also an online community, where individuals and companies can interact with us. Joining our community is FREE and open to everyone. 

Who should join?

  • Anyone interested in architecture and design
  • Parent or student interested in architecture or design
  • Designers in the Philadelphia region and beyond
  • Designers, Contractors, or other built environment professionals who want to volunteer or mentor K-12 

What can you do if you join?

  • Register for events with one click
  • Submit great story ideas about Design for our consideration
  • If you are a teacher or parent or student, access some of our K-12 educational curriculum and lesson plans.

As the community grows and evolves, we will present more opportunities for you to deepen your engagement with the Center and with the design community.
