The Philadelphia Chapter recently held its first happy hour as part of their new series, One Building One Brew. The group gathered at the Rohm and Haas Building (George M. Ewing & Company and Pietro Belluschi, 1964) where they engaged in a lively discussion led by Ben Leech, Bradley Maule, and William Whitaker.
The chapter wishes to thank everyone who attended and helped make the first happy hour a great success! Each stop for One Building One Brew aims to highlight a different Modern building in Philadelphia as a means to foster a dialogue on the city's remarkable collection of mid-century modern architecture.
The happy hour series will be held on the last Thursday of every other month. Our next stop will be at Sophy Curson (Beryl Price, 1952) located at 19th and Sansom Street, near Rittenhouse Square on August 25th, 5:30-7:30pm. We hope to see you there!
