Description/Abstract

"Due to Philadelphia's position as a cultural center, there is a need to build upon the idea of the Avenue of the Arts as a cultural event within the urban fabric by celebrating the role of the Philadelphia Orchestra as a monumental symbol to the city...

The intent of this thesis will be to interpret the cultural event of the orchestra into contemporary terms; to explore the idea of architectural promenade and how it relates to the spatial experience; to elucidate the idea of cultural monument as an event within the existing city fabric."
