People Process Place celebrates the collaboration of designers, university leaders, housing officers, fabricators, and builders, in the creation of a new signature high rise student residence on the North Broad Street skyline. Morgan Hall contributes to the ongoing transformation of Temple University into a community-engaged, pedestrian-oriented, academic and cultural destination in Philadelphia. The project encompasses a full city block on the southern edge of Temple’s campus and is both the announcement of the institution along the approach from Center City, as well as the culmination of Liacouras Walk, which connects the campus.
A new publication People Process Place, accompanies the exhibit and will be available gratis for reception and exhibit guests. The Album honors the hundreds of people that contributed to the creation of this new place in the City.
