Whew, we did it! Over the course of four days, AIA Philadelphia welcomed thousands of locals and visitors alike into the Center for Architecture and Design for a celebration of design excellence in Philadelphia.  Wednesday night the Don Jones band rocked the house as we kicked off Convention with the Shildan Opening Party.  We started mornings off bright and early with free coffee at the Jacobs Coffee Bar, followed by YAF running and walking tours around the city. In the afternoons, parklets lined the 1200 block of Arch Street - inviting the public to enjoy the beautiful weather and explore the imaginative spaces created by local architecture and design firms. We finished each night off with the Loewen Happy Hours, a lively celebration throughout the Center and into the Saint-Gobain Parklet Design Competition.. and to top it all off, visitors got a taste of Philadelphia's best architecture and eateries in the O'Donnell & Naccarato Welcome Pocket Guide.

Thank you to all who made this Convention possible - here's to our community!
