The University of Pennsylvania’s new Ronald O. Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics brings together for the first time in one location the School of Arts and Sciences’ departments of Political Science and of Economics. In addition, related academic programs will be located in the new building: the Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI), Christopher H. Browne Center for International Politics (Browne Center), Center for the Study of Contemporary China (CSCC), Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of DemocracyPenn Institute for Economic Research, and Penn Program on Opinion Research and Election Studies.

Located on the northeast corner of Walnut and 36th streets, the project involved the adaptive reuse and expansion of the circa 1925 Art Deco-style West Philadelphia Title and Trust Company building. The 110,000-square-foot project doubles the capacity of the original bank building. As the first major undergraduate academic development north of Walnut, the design is home to Penn’s newest academic center for teaching and research.
