DesignPhiladelphia Starts Tomorrow!
October 9, 2012
Today marks the first day of the DesignPhiladelphia, a five-day city wide festival with over 120 different events around Philadelphia that aim to discuss and explore the role that design plays in our daily lives.
DesignPhiladelphia wants to remind us that design is everywhere we look, from something as small as a paperclip to something as large and complex as an urban plan.
This Saturday, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities, the Philadelphia Water Department, and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability will be hosting the Sustainable Streets Scavenger Hunt, an exploration of some of Philadelphia’s most inventively designed streets that increase safety, reduce stormwater runoff, increase urban greenspace, and calm traffic.
Come join us on Saturday, October 13th at 11:00am on the corner of 12th Street and Reed Street to take part in the Scavenger Hunt and see how Philadelphia is innovatively re-imagining how street design can improve our communities.
