Poulin + Morris Announces New Projects for Barnard College, The Franklin Institute, and Prudential Headquarters

Since its founding in 1889, Barnard College has been the preeminent liberal arts college for women in the United States. One of the original Seven Sisters schools, Barnard’s mission is to provide a superior liberal arts education to promising and high-achieving young women. Located on a picturesque, 4-acre campus in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the College currently has approximately 2,400 students and 375 faculty members. To accommodate the school’s continual growth and development, Barnard commissioned Poulin + Morris to update its environmental graphics and wayfinding sign program. The program includes identification and branding of building exteriors and event spaces, key room identification, campus and building directories, changeable informational displays/kiosks, and a donor recognition program.

Founded in 1824 to honor the legacy of Benjamin Franklin, The Franklin Institute is one of the nation's oldest centers for science education. Today, the world-renowned Franklin Institute hosts an array of hands-on, educational exhibitions and programs focusing on science and technology as well as community outreach. Located in Philadelphia's Parkway Museums District, the Institute is currently constructing the 3-story Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pavilion which will house an education center/conference space, a rotating exhibition gallery, and a new, major permanent exhibition on the human brain.

Poulin + Morris is developing an innovative donor recognition program honoring approximately 120 donors whose contributions have made the construction of the new pavilion possible.
