A different class last semester focused on the adaptive reuse of vacant or highly deteriorated spaces. This article in Hidden City Philadelphia has great coverage about the work of my fellow classmates on a church at 40th and Sansom St.
This term, a seminar and studio will focus on the 19th Street Baptist Church in South Philadelphia. Additionally, as part of this year’s IDEA Days festival, there will be a one-day workshop and a day of public service seeking the potential of these once sacred places. I will be sure to include an update about these projects at the end of September!
