Reimagining the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with Design Workshop

The international landscape architecture firm Design Workshop has been selected to lead the process to reimagine the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.


The Design Workshop and its sub-consultant team will work closely with the City to create a world-class public realm plan for people-centric, permanent changes that will dramatically improve the appeal, use, traffic safety, functionality, and beauty of the Parkway.


The City selected three teams to participate in the Ideas Workshop, led by Design Workshop, DLANDStudio+DIGSAU, and MVRDV. They presented their ideas to the public at the Barnes Foundation on July 14th, which was also streamed online, and is currently available here and via Philadelphia Parks & Recreation’s YouTube Channel.
