Rowhouse Workshop travels to The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts at Appalachian State University. The project surveys the physical and social histories embedded in Philadelphia’s row houses and was originally presented at Cherry Street Pier in Philadelphia in 2019, with Center support.

Conceived and curated by Pew Fellow Brian Phillips and his firm Interface Studio Architects (ISA), the interactive exhibition leads visitors through a series of neighborhood block installations and provides a window into the lives of participating residents through songs, recipes, photos, videos, and objects that are displayed in totems fabricated by local fabrication partner, Tiny WPA, and its community building program.
