Students residing at University of Penn this summer will definitely see most of these buildings. For those Architecture students, I'm sure you'd like to know who was behind the design of the building.

At University of Pennsylvania, the Twin Buildings at Ninth and Market Streets were designed by who? 


The oldest theatre in America is the Walnut Street Theatre. The Walnut Street Theatre stands in Philadelphia after being built by who in 1928. 


Built in 1891, the University of Pennsylvania Library (now called the Anne and Jerome Fisher Fine Arts Library, was designed by Philadelphia's own architect. Can you name him?
