The Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums presented, “Creativity & Collaboration: Transforming the Historic Penn Museum”. This case study was recently presented at Building Museums™ 2020 in Chicago earlier in March. Presenters have graciously decided to share this as FREE online webinar to the first 100 participants to register.
In 2017, the Penn Museum began a three-phase project to renovate two of its six wings, restore original features of the more than century-old building, add important visitor amenities, and upgrade the MEP and structural systems—while remaining open with a full range of programming. Attendees will take away valuable lessons from the team’s on-the- ground experience and how it met challenges (and surprises) with architectural vision, creative engineering design, use of cutting-edge technology, and collaboration.
