• Sansom Place East building

Sansom Place East and West are two apartment-style high rises that are the center of Penn's graduate resident community. Penn had recently begun a tradition of hiring modern architects for campus projects. Richard and Dion Neutra were among the Europeans who brought international modernism to the United States in the 1920s. Sansom Place East and West are constructed of rugged materials and stand in contrast to their surroundings in their height.
