Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA

Located at 3700 Walnut Street, the building was built in 1962 and refurbished in 2001 with a new entrance and I assume some interior work. The architects were Harbeson Hough Livingston Larson, who designed numerous buildings around Philadelphia and evolved out of the office of Paul Philippe Cret, the influential classical architect who headed the architecture department at the University of Pennsylvania for more than 30 years. The firm is now known as H2L2. The building also has the interesting detail of metal framed display windows along the street at ground level, most of which are empty but some include plants.
