Another installment of The Citizen’s Real Estate Development… for Good, powered by Drexel University’s Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation and Fitler Club, on—literally—building a better, more inclusive, and prosperous Philadelphia.
Michael Murphy is the co-founder of nonprofit architecture design firm MASS Design Group. He sees buildings as “vessels for healing individuals and communities” as demonstrated in his work, such as The National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, AL, which has been called “the single greatest work of American architecture in the 21st century.” In conversation with Inga Saffron, The Inquirer’s Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic.

The Philadelphia Citizen’s Development … For Good is a year-long speaker series that smartly delves into the economic and cultural difference that enlightened and intentional real estate development can make in our city. For decades, real-estate developers have had an outsized effect on the trajectory of growth in Philadelphia. And now a new generation of visionaries, deal-makers and builders are following suit, driven by the merging of social impact and bottom-line imperatives.
