Weitzman School Awards

The 2021 Weitzman School Awards

The 2021 Weitzman School Awards will take place on Thursday, November 18 at 5:30pm, at the Kleinman Energy Forum located in Fisher Fine Arts Library on Penn's campus.

Weitzman is excited to celebrate our students and design leaders in person while following all safety guidelines to protect our attendees. Besides the live campus event, plans are underway to host two virtual talks honoring the winners in January 2022. 

All event proceeds will support student scholarships in architecture and city and regional planning.
