20th Century
Chestnut Hill:
A celebration of mid-century architecture

Known primarily for its late 19th and early 20th century architecture, Chestnut Hill is also home to outstanding examples of Modern, Post-modern, International Style and Contemporary houses, designed by architects of national and international reputation. This program celebrates the contribution of these buildings, and of the architects who designed them, to the built environment of our community.

The exhibit features photographs, architectural drawings, and plans that illustrate the work of Louis Kahn, Robert Venturi, Romaldo Giurgola, Oskar Stonorov, Newcomb Montgomery & Robert Bishop, James A. Nolen, John Lane Evans & Roland Taylor Addis, John Rauch, Kenneth Day, Runyan & Associates, and Mark Ueland.

It is open and free to the public at the Chestnut Hill Historical Society, 8708 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19118; hours are Tuesday - Friday, 9:30am-2:30pm and Saturday, 11:00am-4:00pm.
