The Evolving City

PROBLEM

Design a 2,200 square foot exhibition about a topic related to Philadelphia for the Rosenwald Wolf Gallery in the University of the Arts, from conceptual development through construction documents.

SOLUTION

As chipping away paint on a wall allows you to see the previous colors of the room, The Evolving City provides an examination of the different lives the Liberty Lands Park site has had - cutting away layers to explore what was there before and adding layers to explore what can be in the future. This incorporation of different elevations provides a unique way to understand the evolution, while leveraging the gallery’s odd stairs and platforms.
