Fleisher Art Memorial

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



Help a venerable private art school transform its antiquated six-building arts campus in South Philadelphia into a vibrant 21st-century institution without destroying its historic character


Identify viable concepts, options, and next steps for redevelopment

Scope of Work:

Artspace helped facilitate focus group discussions that solicited input from a broad range of constituents. Our recommendations included: create a new, more recognizable main entry that uses the historic Sanctuary as the gateway to the complex; use the older buildings for administrative offices and faculty studios; and build a new classroom building in the parking lot.
