Temple breaking ground on architecture department building

"Temple University will break ground tomorrow on a $10 million building for the school’s architecture department.

The 45,000-square-foot building will be the last component to complete the Philadelphia university’s development of a mini-arts quad on its main campus off North Broad Street. It will join Tyler School of Art, the Boyer College of Music and Dance and the School of Communications and Theater.

The architecture building was designed by H2L2 of Philadelphia and is expected to be completed by next fall. The architecture department is housed in a building on 12th Street.

The project is part of Temple 20/20, a plan to reshape the main campus with several projects over the next decade. Already under way is the renovation and expansion of Pearson-McGonigle Halls. In October, the university will break ground on a new state-of-the-art residential/retail complex at Broad and Oxford streets."
