Vanna Venturi House for Sale

Vanna Venturi house 002

Robert Venturi’s groundbreaking design for his mother is one of the most influential buildings of the latter half of the 20th century. Named one of the “10 Buildings That Changed America” and widely considered the first post-modern building in the United States, to say it is notable among architects is an understatement. Many world-renowned building designers and critics have made pilgrimages to this residence hidden in the heart of Chestnut Hill.

ATHENAEUM OF PHILADELPHIA SEEKS SATURDAY VOLUNTEERS

In fall 2008, with the aid of generous volunteers, the Athenaeum began opening on one Saturday per month. Over the years since that time two more Saturdays have been added, again through the good efforts of volunteers. Now the Athenaeum wants to take the next step and begin opening in fall 2015 on all Saturdays in the month, barring holidays and major snowstorms.

Please help with this project. The hours will remain 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on each Saturday. If you have time to volunteer any hours for these Saturdays, please contact Sandra L. Tatman, at 215-925-2688 or sltatman@philaathenaeum.org. Your enthusiasm and willingness to serve are most appreciated!
