PIUR 2016 Winning Photo

The Penn Institute for Urban Research, in collaboration with the Center for Public Health Initiatives, announced the winner of its 2016 photo contest on the theme of public health and the urban environmental landscape at the “Shaping the Urban Health and Environmental Landscape” symposium, held on February 25th in the Fisher Fine Arts Library at the University of Pennsylvania. The contest was judged by the symposium’s panel of experts, who looked for compelling images that emphasize ways that urban design has succeeded or failed to promote public health and well-being.  The winning photograph,  “Summer’s Day at John Kelly Pool, Fairmount Park, Pa.,” was taken by Ben Chrisinger.


“Schuylkill River Trail” by Rob Lybeck, and Teng Teng’s “Spruce Street Harbor Park, Philadelphia.” were the runners-up.
