Campus Architect David Hollenberg discusses The University of Pennsylvania’s decision to preserve parts of the 164 year old Samuel Sloan-designed Gothic Revival house in the design of the new Perry World House. He also describes the desire for Penn’s architecture to look forward while remembering West Philadelphia’s architectural roots. “We’re trying to build on our ongoing tradition of good design while being good stewards – both physically and academically looking forward and backward.” The Perry World House project – a new building designed by 1100 Architect that incorporates portions of the older building – broke ground in the Fall of 2014.
