Grab a pencil, round up some friends and head to South Philadelphia this Saturday for a Sustainable Streets Scavenger Hunt! As part of Design Philadelphia, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation (MOTU) and Utilities and the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) are offering up one free bike rack and one free rain barrel to the team that completes the hunt and has the most number of correct answers to questions about the design of our city streets. The 8th annual DesignPhiladelphia Festival will showcase all aspects of design from architecture to fashion, interior design to graphic arts this Wednesday through Sunday. The Sustainable Street Scavenger Hunt will celebrate the development of the Complete Streets Design Handbook and the Green City, Clean Waters plan, both of which are pushing designers, planners, engineers and citizens to re-imagine Philadelphia streets in whole new ways. Check out stormwater planters, look for some street furniture and think about those curb cuts!
