The City of Philadelphia has announced an event on August 4 as part of the ongoing Roundhouse community engagement process which will help the City understand how Philadelphians feel about the future of the former police headquarters.


This event, called Framing the Future of the Roundhouse, will be an opportunity for Philadelphians to share their feelings on the future of the site before it is put up for sale in 2023.


The event will take place on Thursday, August 4, from 1-5 p.m. in Franklin Square at 200 N 6th Street. The square is across the street from the Roundhouse. The event is hosted by Connect the Dots and Amber Art & Design, the consultant team behind the creative public engagement effort. For more information about the project and further opportunities for engagement,

About the Framing the Future of the Roundhouse Project

Framing the Future of the Roundhouse is a yearlong project to understand how Philadelphians feel about the former police headquarters. The results will guide the terms of sale for the building. The team behind the project is Connect the Dots and Amber Art and Design. They use a process called Meaningful Placemaking, which centers the community as the most important designers, users, and valued voices for a project.
