Owner description: The Center provides the public with a place to explore architecture, urban planning, and design, allowing them to understand how these disciplines affect us all in our daily lives. Using Philadelphia's distinctive breadth of architecture, pioneering urban design, and manufacturing heritage as the foundation for conversation, we educate the public through walking tours, guest speakers, exhibitions, hands-on workshops, design competitions, festivals, and children’s programming. The Center brings together architects, designers, developers, thought leaders, and the public under one roof and also provides office space for AIA Philadelphia, the Community Design Collaborative, and the AIA Bookstore. The Center is open to the public seven days a week.

Reviewed October 10, 2011

i was looking for a non "colonial history tour" and had a narrow window of opportunity, and decided to take this tour even though i am not an architectural person. quite interesting and our tour guide knew of several interesting locations to get faulous bird's eye views of the city center.
