But the Viaduct was also the subject of one of my design studios during my sabbatical as an architecture student a few years ago. I got to spend a semester with my fellow students confronting the possibilities of the thing. And like so many other studios and charrettes, passionate advocates and responsible leaders, I find that the key to unlocking its substantial value is to reactivate its genius as a piece of connective infrastructure.

The Trestle Inn
11th & Callowhill, Philadelphia, PA
On Wednesday, November 14, 2012, the Secret Cinema returns to The Trestle Inn, the popular “Whiskey and Go Go” nightspot in Philadelphia’s emerging “loft district.” On that night we’ll revisit a favorite Secret Cinema program concept that we last presented nine years ago,* Exotica Music Films. This collection of ultra-rare footage from a variety of sources — including very early TV shows and film jukeboxes from the 1940s — offers a chance to hear, and see, a wondrous assortment of international music (both authentic and gloriously fake), from a carefree, boozy time, before David Byrne rendered “World Music” a politically-correct bore.
All of the films will be projected from 16mm film prints on a giant movie screen (not video).
There will be one complete show, starting at 8:00 pm. Admission is $7.00,

Speaking of Spring Garden Street, Planning Director Karen Thompson said the pre-proposal meeting for the Spring Garden Connector project design RFP was well attended, and she was hoping that meant many submissions would be received by today’s deadline. UPDATE: Nine proposals were received by the deadline.
A short-list for the designer of perhaps the largest neighborhood-to-river connection project along the Central Delaware will be finalized early next week, she said, with interviews Nov. 5. Staff hopes to bring a proposed contract to the board executive committee at its December meeting.
