The 3rd annual Design Philadelphia festival is bigger than ever, and East Passyunk has been designated one of three design districts in the city. That means there will be about a dozen events, discussions and tours between today and Sunday focusing on design, sustainability and good ol’ city livin’.
A little buttering up from the brochure:
South Philadelphia’s charm and unique character has contributed to its evolution today as a great place to live, work, visit, eat, drink, shop and explore. Rich in culture and home to an influx of creatives, the neighborhood has become quintessentially Philadelphian.
Sounds about right. Some of the highlights include a a symposium on green wall design at Urban Jungle and a look at how the smallest grocery store in the known universe, Green Aisle, manages to seem so much bigger.
