6:00 - 8:00 PM  |  Exclusive Reception for Rail Park Enthusiasts  |  Join us for a reception and presentation of conceptual plans and drawings illustrating a vision for a 4-block section of the proposed Rail Park that were produced through a Community Design Collaborative grant by designers from OLIN, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, CVM and VJ Associates. Meet the designers and board members of Friends of the Rail Park. Enjoy hors d'oeurves and wine courtesy of Tria Cafe. The event will include brief comments from the designers as well as interior and exterior Animated Architecture video mapping projections curated by Sean Stoops.

8:00 - 11:00 PM  |  Design Philly After Party for Friends  |  Celebrate DesignPhiladelphia and support the Rail Park!  An open invitation to the public to celebrate the conclusion of this important festival and cultural conduit that continues to advance and engage our design community in ways that present Philadelphia at its best to the national and international design world. Let's raise a glass to Hilary Jay, her staff, all the Supporters and the Philadelphia AIA! Wine and refreshment will be served.

This event is sponsored by Gilmore & Associates and hosted by Michael Garden of CITYSPACE in collaboration with Octo Design Group. All proceeds will benefit Friends of the Rail Park and support the vision of a three-mile linear park through center city and connecting diverse neighborhoods and institutions, supported by various advocacy groups.

The event will be held at CITYSPACE, an 1880s Addison Hutton-designed mansion. We look forward to seeing you there!
