Happy 2024 from KieranTimberlake

With gratitude for your ongoing trust in us.

The glass pavilions that serve as gateways to Dilworth Park's transit concourse are defined by the arc of a circle centered on the top of the west facade of City Hall. This gesture suggests a monumental presence for the pavilions in spite of their modest scale. 
 
In 2024, we'll celebrate a decade of public placemaking in the heart of Philadelphia. As reported by the Center City District, Dilworth Park welcomes 10 million visitors annually. 
 
We're taking a short hiatus for the holidays and returning on January 2.  
We look forward to reconnecting in the New Year.
