Segregation By Design: How one architect is visualizing the legacy of America’s racist urbanism

Walking around the north side of Philadelphia’s University City neighborhood, it’s difficult to imagine what stood before the sprawling University of Pennsylvania medical campus, replete with scores of half-empty parking lots and franchise restaurants.

With NBA Draft approaching, Sixers await Brooklyn’s decision on their first-round pick

With the Philadelphia 76ers’ season coming to an end last week at the hands of the Miami Heat, attention now shifts to the offseason and how Daryl Morey and company can improve the roster. One of the main avenues for team-building is the NBA Draft, with the 2022 edition set to take place on June 23.
