This site serves as the institutional identity for PennDesign. As such, the building represents in practice the knowledge shared in the school's programs: architecture, planning, fine arts, landscape architecture and historic preservation. The renovation projects will result in a set of facilities that emphasize the studio, seminar and research activities of PennDesign students, faculty, and scholars in all the disciplines of the school.
The Master Plan for renovations of Meyerson Hall directs multi-phased improvements to studios, common areas, entryways, and the fabrication lab.
Century Bond Program:
Phased renovations to Meyerson Hall include energy efficiency upgrades funded by $11.6M from the Century Bond program. HVAC infrastructure upgrades will include: new HVAC distribution, new air handlers, conversion of existing units to variable air volume, high efficiency motors with variable frequency drives and a new building automation system and new switchgear – Completion of the Century Bond work is scheduled for Fall 2016.
