Philadelphia City Council decides how to spend $4.5 BILLION every year. They also decide what can get built in this city, where, and when. Council can veto bike lanes, change trash collection, and raise or reduce parking tickets. And this spring, more than 15 candidates are running for Philadelphia City Council.

But don’t worry--we have the perfect event for you. 

Please join us at the first ever City Council Candidate Convention, organized by Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP) and the Committee of Seventy and hosted by WHYY. This is a great opportunity for young Philadelphians to meet with, speak with, and learn more about the candidates running for council. All of the declared City Council candidates have been invited to to engage and hear from their current/prospective constituents (That’s you!). 

-- This event is open to the public and is completely nonpartisan--YIP and the Committee of Seventy do not endorse any candidates;
-- Don’t know the issues? Don’t worry. YIP and our partners will have a cheat sheet available for everyone; and

<![CDATA[Non Discrete Architectures: Networks, Digital Prosthetics and Augmentation]]> April 2, 2015 6:30PM April 3, 2015 5:00PM

We are at a pivotal moment in our society, as it has become increasingly clear that design is inextricably linked to the multi-dimensional world and culture of technology. As such, our creative stance has had to evolve with technology. Technology’s operatives: Coding, Data, Networks, Robotics and Augmented Space etc., have ushered in a new aesthetic, one that is mute, virtual and experiential. This represents our new condition, the convergence of the physical and the digital.

The Non Discrete Architectures Symposium will catalogue and explore the implications, methods of understanding, research and production of the imminent convergence of the digital and physical and thereby acknowledge its power and intent on shifting and expanding architectural and spatial production.

This symposium is organized by Shawn Rickenbacker and generously supported by Motorola Solutions and PennDesign's Office of the Dean.

<![CDATA[Peter Bohlin: Arfaa Lecture Series]]> April 7, 2015 6:30PM 8:00PM


Few American architects practicing today are as esteemed by their peers as Peter Bohlin. The practice he first established in 1965 in Wilkes-Barre, PA, is now known as Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and has additional offices in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle and San Francisco. Bohlin and BCJ are known for their deft reinterpretations of modernist aesthetics, uncommon responsiveness to the particularity of place and user, and a sensitivity to material and detailing that is nearly unmatched by their contemporaries. The firm is also acknowledged for its egalitarian working environment and the nurturing of creativity among its staff.

In 2010, Peter Bohlin was awarded the Gold Medal by the American Institute of Architects, the highest honor an individual American architect can receive. His now iconic works include: the Forest House in Connecticut, the 5th Avenue Apple Store in New York City, and the Grand Teton National Park Discovery Center in Wyoming. He has been a guest design critic and visiting professor at a number of leading schools of architecture and he frequently serves as a juror for national and regional design competitions. 

The lecture is free and open to the public.
