JacobsWyper Architects, one of Philadelphia’s leading architecture firms, was selected to design the American Bible Society’s new $60 million Faith & Liberty Discovery Center that is planned for Independence Mall. This 40,000 square-foot space will be part of the Bible organization’s headquarters, which re-located to Philadelphia from New York City, and will bring a new interactive attraction that focuses on the Bible as a cultural force that has influenced history, faith and liberty.
“Being an integral part of this exciting, high profile project which will increase tourism in Philadelphia is an honor for our architecture and design firm,” commented Jamie Wyper, AIA, co-founder of JacobsWyper Architects. Leading the project is Peter Saylor, FAIA, whose museum project experience includes The Franklin Institute’s Karabots Pavilion, the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe and the Chemical Heritage Foundation’s Museum and Conference Center.
