On Saturday, November 10 a team of architects and interns spent the day building wall panels for Habitat Philadelphia's next series of homes in the Sharswood community just north of Girard College. Habitat is working with the Philadelphia Housing Authority to rehab existing houses and develop new homes in this neighborhood.

AIA Housing Committee member firms who sponsored the volunteers included Cecil Baker & Partners, Bernardon Architects, WRT, BLT Architects and Looney Ricks, Kiss Architects.

Volunteers included Nicholas Connolly, Kelsey Ross, Maria Ross, Kristina Pulsinellli, Nicole Dress, Amalia Gonsalves, Alex Morris, Suvir Hira and Alex Bruce.

This was the third annual build day sponsored by the AIA Housing Committee.
