Beneath the Kimmel Center’s illuminated glass canopy lies a multitude of issues and quakes relative to architecture, design, civic engagement and urban planning. Ah, but it makes for such a pretty picture, don’t you think?
A not-so-brief timeline in URL’s:
Rafael Vinoly Architects – a plentiful portfolio of mostly glass domes and exposed structural framing
The Kimmel Center – official site with news, events and of course not a word of anything controversial
New York Observer article – short n sweet n filled with gossip
PlanPhilly – the KC Board’s Sunshine-y plan
Inga Saffron & Chris Satullo via the Inquirer – musings and such on the socio-architectural ins and outs of the space
Phillyblog spinoff – chock full of sometimes-ravenous opinions, as usual
Special thanks to JMGPhoto for capturing a lovely shot of the Center’s back-end. How appropos.
