Philadelphia Then and Now: Are Times Really A-Changin’?
An Interview with Harris Steinberg
The DVSGA invites you to a conversation with Harris Steinberg, Executive Director of the Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation at Drexel University.
Harris will speak on “Philadelphia Then and Now: Are the Times Really A-Changin?” and then participate in a Q&A led by Inga Saffron of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Have we turned the corner? Has Philadelphia finally come around to embracing the role of planning and design in city life and economic development? Big projects such as the new Comcast Innovation Center to Drexel’s ambitious plans for University City are reshaping the skyline while smaller interventions such as Sister Cities Park and Schuylkill Banks are making the city livable.
