The Benjamin Franklin Parkway Series
The Benjamin Franklin Parkway Series

Invisible Cities: The Benjamin Franklin Parkway Series is a set of three diptychs of drawings on transparent plexiglass panels illuminated with LEDs.

Multiple layers of drawings represent the historic progression of the Parkway, with depictions of landmark buildings such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Water Works, the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, the Free Library of Philadelphia, and the Rodin Museum. The modern era is represented with more recent additions such as Park Towne Place and the Barnes Foundation. The layer illuminated by LEDs reveals a history that is no longer seen, sites of Philadelphia’s industry, residences, and fairgrounds which were redeveloped to create the contemporary Parkway.

The complex images offer a look into the past as a way to understand the present.

The series was commissioned by Aimco to celebrate the centennial of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
