A cathedral that was never meant for holy things--unless you mean performing arts. – In Short
Penn had been settled in West Philadelphia for three decades when Horace Trumbauer built his French-cathedral inspired auditorium in 1929. Trumbauer's firm was also responsible for the PMA, the Public Ledger Building and the Free Library, to name a few notables. Penn's extensive Perelman Quadrangle redevelopment program--which celebrates its completion in September 2000--expanded Irvine's uses while maintaining most of the building's original features.
