Weitzman prepares students to address complex sociocultural and environmental issues through thoughtful inquiry, creative expression, and innovation. As a diverse community of scholars and practitioners, we are committed to advancing the public good – locally, nationally, and globally – through architecture, city and regional planning, the fine arts, historic preservation, landscape architecture, and urban spatial analytics.
On Saturday, May 13, more than 300 future architects, landscape architects, planners, preservationists, and artists crossed the stage at Penn's historic Irvine Auditorium as part of Weitzman's 2023 Commencement Ceremony.
For a graduate architecture studio led by Winka Dubbeldam and Richard Garber, students designed a net-zero geological research center in Denmark dedicated to the study of climate change. It's one of hundreds of research projects showcased in the online Year End Show, opened in conjunction with the in-person exhibition. (Image: Sumeng Chen and Hanfei Xiao)
