Class of 1978 Pavilion

The proposed Special Collections Center will include a new Pavilion with views to College Hall and College Green. The centerpiece of the 1978 Orrery Pavilion will be the magnificent and historic Rittenhouse Orrery, currently located on the first floor. The new space will become the premier location for high level University events, and it will be the site for changing exhibitions, public receptions, performances, lectures, readings, and seated dinners.
