“I am thrilled to share the projects designed by Penn College senior architecture students in their final year of study,” said Naim N. Jabbour, assistant professor of architecture. “This work represents the culmination of four years of effort, where students apply the various acquired skills encompassing architectural history, theory, process, graphics, materials, structures, environmental systems, working drawings, building performance, sustainability and design. The work submitted by the students is meaningful, comprehensive, exceptional and awe-inspiring!”
