Architectural critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer for more than 20 years, Inga Saffron won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for her sagacious critiques of urbanism, planning, and Philly’s hyper-rapid transformation after a half-century slump. An Inquirer writer since 1985, she worked as the paper’s suburban reporter and Eastern European correspondent, was a Loeb Fellow at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 2012, and in 2018 was awarded the prestigious Vincent Scully Prize by the National Building Museum. Becoming Philadelphia is a collection of Saffron’s most insightful newspaper columns.
