Case Paper Facility Featured at UPenn Architectural Archives
An image of Case Paper’s Philadelphia facility was recently included in Uncommon Modern: Photographic Portraits of Midcentury Vernacular Architecture in Great Philadelphia, 1937-1970 at the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania.
The exhibit highlights gems of the mid 20th-century architecture in southeastern and central Pennsylvania, and showcases architecturally interesting mid-century design, including the Case Paper building, which was formally the Philco Research Laboratories.
At its peak, the facility supported over 2,000 employees. Case Paper acquired the building in 1988 and in 1999 moved its Long Island City facility into this 720,000 sq. ft. factory, creating one of the largest paper-converting facilities in North America.
