The morning begins with a series of panels with presentations by noted authorities on architecture and preservation. There will be three time blocks, with four parallel sessions during each block. Each session is an hour and fifteen minutes and includes three paper presentations with time for Q&A at the end.

Speakers have been asked to pre-record their presentations and we will be releasing these videos to registrants after the Symposium so that you can watch sessions you weren't able to attend.

In the afternoon, participants can choose from one of three walking tours of modern architectural icons, ranging from sites on the Penn campus to Center City and Society Hill.

Finish off the day with a guided walking tour of modern outdoor sculpture in partnership with the Association for Public Art and a complimentary cold-one at one of Philadelphia’s leading craft brewers, Victory Brewing Co.

Note: Breakfast at Penn is currently TBD due to COVID restrictions. Lunch is on your own.


First Panel Sessions 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM


Second Panel Sessions 9:50 - 11:05 AM


Third Panel Sessions 11:35 AM - 12:50 PM
