Buildings in Pennsylvania

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Pennsylvania Buildings, USA. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Pennsylvania buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the state. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 2 pages of Pennsylvanian Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.
