DesignPhiladelphia is an important festival for the city, showcasing the
key role design has played in the history of the region. Tonight, the whole festival wraps with The Closing Party: A Fundraiser for Friends of the Rail Park,
a ticketed benefit party and presentation of conceptual designs by
Olin, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and CVM for transforming the former City
Branch of the Reading Railroad into a public park.
At 6 p.m., join in a merry fundraising event and meet the design team and board of Friends of the Rail Park.
Contribute $75 per person, and learn about the incredible vision for a
three-mile long park along the Reading Viaduct east of Broad Street and
the submerged lines to the west.
From 8 to 11 p.m., show up for a festive fete to celebrate DesignPhiladelphia and the completion of this important festival. A $25
ticket supports the efforts of the rail park, too.
