main Philadelphia campus over the next decade took a big step forward this spring with the opening of a $10 million building for the Architecture School.

H2L2 served as Architect of Record for the recently-com- pleted Tyler School of Art fine arts facility, with the Carlos Jimenez Studio as Design Architect. Expected to earn LEED Sil- ver, theArchitecture School has the first green roof on the main campus. Elegant and translu- cent, the building is supported by tubular load-bearing steel studs and clad in glass curtain wall.
