WINNERS “Idea competitions that

expressly acknowledge they will not lead to a ‘real’ proj- ect are intended to provoke, and to provide a forum for invention, speculation, thought and reflection on a particular subject. They intend to elicit a range of endeavor and talent, of con- jecture, of ‘what if?’… This competition for a ‘replace- ment’ of Notman’s build- ing had at least two goals, one was to shine a light on the Athenaeum and its ac- complishments, its presence and contributions to the physical, mental and artistic well-being of the city and its citizens, and the other has been to stimulate the archi- tectural community – stu- dents and practitioners alike – and to encourage them to speculate upon the future of

libraries and their potential nature and contribution to the community, in particular here in Philadelphia in such a place as this address on Washington Square.” “Looking Forward” was

Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and the first, second and third Sat- urdays of each month from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. For questions or to learn

CCRA begins zoning remapping project on South Street


he new Zoning Code eliminated approxi- mately half of the zoning categories created under the repealed Code. As a stop gap measure, the zoning map was revised by converting the former code classifications into their 2012 counterparts with the idea that each neighborhood would conduct a detailed remapping exercise to fine tune community zoning. A CCRA taskforce has commenced meeting every two weeks to review the zoning map in our neigh- borhood, JFK to South Street, Broad Street to the Schuylkill River, an area,

which contains close to a thousand individually zoned properties. To make the task manageable, the taskforce has decided to divide the community into sections. Once the commit-

tee has analyzed the current zoning classifications and the on-street structures of each section, public meet- ings will be convened to solicit community input. The first focus will be the north side of South Street from Broad to the Schuylkill River because the Planning Commission and South of South Neighborhood As- sociation (SOSNA) have already commenced work- ing on the south side of

South Street. Once the South Street task is completed, the taskforce will turn to a more ambitious project, a review of the zoning from JFK south to Locust, an area containing a variety of high density zoning classifica- tions. The Association is particularly interested in reviewing the JFK to Locust map with members of con- dominium/coop boards in the northern portion of the neighborhood.
