PennPraxis’ design projects bring together the best minds and cutting-edge practices from students and faculty in architecture, landscape architecture and urban design—the largest disciplines at the Weitzman School. As with all PennPraxis projects, this work is grounded in place and community, and tests new tools, methodologies, and programs to simultaneously create responsive and responsible design, while also providing a format for expanded pedagogy and learning for both students and collaborating partners. Design projects range from inspired transformations of the public realm and alternative development formats, to integrating physical and policy design to imagine new architectures, research and design for climate resilience, addressing large-scale ecosystem services in both rural and urban contexts, and deploying new technology for fabrication and construction.
