Evans Building Centennial Renaissance


The Evans Building Centennial Renaissance project has transformed Penn Dental Medicine’s historic Thomas Evans Building throughout. This initiative was part of an ambitious, strategic plan envisioned by Dean Denis F. Kinane and the School’s leadership.

The iconic Evans Building has been home to Penn Dental Medicine for a century — February 2015 marked the 100th anniversary of its dedication and launched the Evans Building Centennial Renaissance project. This two-year, $37-million renovation has impacted all four levels of this 133,304-square-foot building, preserving beloved architectural details, while converting teaching and clinical practices spaces to 21st century functionality. Dean Denis Kinane will be joined by Penn President Amy Gutmann to officially celebrate the completion of the project with alumni and friends during Alumni Weekend 2017 — Evans Building Centennial Celebration »
