The Impact of supporting capital projects
To maintain its renowned reputation and attract exceptional students and faculty, academic preeminence requires spaces that facilitate innovation and collaboration, nurture new partnerships, and respond nimbly to evolving needs and growth. Below are some capital projects made possible from the generous support of donors during the Lead by Design Campaign.
Designed by renowned landscape architect Laurie Olin and his colleagues at his firm OLIN, the Stuart Weitzman Plaza is located adjacent to College Green between Meyerson Hall and Fisher Fine Arts Library. This new space is a gateway to Penn’s campus and significantly improves east-west connectivity while increasing gathering spaces for the Penn community.
The new robotics lab is an investment in the School's future, bringing together faculty expertise in fabrication, measurement, and modeling technologies.
Now in a new home in the During Wing adjacent to Fisher Fine Arts Library, this improved facility is a hub to explore the conservation of culturally significant buildings, monuments, and sites throughout the world, including issues of sustainability.
The purpose of this fund is to support student aid and student driven initiatives on an annual basis at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design.
