Graduate Architecture

On a ridgeline next to a rock quarry pond at the campus of Manitoga, the home and studio of the industrial designer Russel Wright, there’s a whirling, biomorphic mass of modular figures—not quite human and not quite animal, but distinctly organic. They’re organized into a rough, habitable dome, holding each other aloft, tiptoe to fingertip. It’s a wide-eyed exploration of the architectural pavilion’s status as a fertile middle ground between sculpture and architecture.

To design its new patient Pavilion on the former site of the now-deconstructed Penn Tower, Penn Medicine has enlisted the design expertise of world-renowned architecture firm Foster + Partners.
