Weitzman School Awards

The 2022 Weitzman School Awards

The 2022 Weitzman School Awards will take place on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, at 6pm at The Shed in New York City. The Shed was designed by this year’s Kanter Tritsch Medalist, Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

We know that spaces matter, and the Weitzman School is excited to celebrate our students and design leaders in person while following all safety guidelines to protect our attendees. This event will be an evening of celebrating collaboration, innovation, and disruption. In addition to our prize winners and medalists, Liz Magill, President of the University of Pennsylvania, will be in attendance.


All event proceeds will support student scholarships in architecture and city and regional planning.
