Pennovation Center Open House
Offered as part of the 2016 Design Philadelphia Festival
Ticket Price: Free; RSVP requested
Where Ideas Go to Work: The Pennovation Works is a unique blend of offices, labs, and production space developed by The University of Pennsylvania on a 23-acre site adjacent to its West Philadelphia campus. The centerpiece of the Pennovation Works is the 58,000 sq. ft. Pennovation Center, home to an entrepreneurial coworking space, labs, inventor garages, the Penn Engineering Research & Collaboration Hub, and PCI Ventures.
Join us for an open house in the newly completed Pennovation Center to meet the designers who have brought new life to this industrial building as Penn’s hub for innovation, research and entrepreneurialism. The Center’s northern façade bursts forth from the grid of the repurposed former industrial warehouse with illuminated angular panes of glass, reflecting the robust creativity and entrepreneurial activity taking place inside by a community of innovators.
Refreshments and light snacks will be served.
