|   Philadelphia, PA
Overview: Franklin & Jordan Hall – a national historic landmark, located within the Franklin Institute Science Museum, was in disrepair with a host of issues threatening the important space. The restored space has dramatically improved acoustic qualities for events and large groups of visitors, and features a programmable lighting system that transforms the space from a serene memorial to an engaging multimedia show about science and Benjamin Franklin’s life. All of this was achieved with minimal impact on the architectural character of the historic landmark through close collaboration with Jablonski Building Conservation. The project won the Grand Jury Award from the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.
