PennPraxis is the clinical consulting arm of the Penn School of Design. It was created in 2001 to further the mission of the school in its five fields: architecture, landscape architecture, city planning, historic preservation, and fine arts. Praxis creates opportunities for PennDesign faculty and students to work on practical or applied projects around the world, providing opportunities to strengthen community ties and provide service to the community. Several PennPraxis projects have focused on participatory planning processes that marry local community expertise and professional design knowledge, including the award-winning A Civic Vision for the Central Delaware, Penn’s Landing Design forums, and Re-Envisioning the Kimmel Center through Civic Engagement and Design.
