About Meyerson Hall -- University of Pennsylvania
You would expect the home of one of the nation’s most prestigious design schools — the place where legendary architects like Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi regularly lectured — to be a place of considerable beauty. And the University of Pennsylvania’s Meyerson Hall is definitely that and much more. A blend of Philadelphia School and early modern heroic forms, the striking 1967 structure is a concrete-framed building crowned by industrial roof skylights. Located in the building’s basement, Room B1 is the largest lecture hall on campus and has been the site of many prominent university events.
