The University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design is the design school of the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. It offers degrees in architecture, landscape architecture, city and regional planning, historic preservation, and fine arts, as well as several dual degrees with other graduate schools at the University of Pennsylvania. Formerly known as PennDesign, it was renamed after Stuart Weitzman donated an undisclosed sum.[1]

The Fisher Fine Arts Library, designed by Philadelphia architect Frank Furness, houses architecture studios on the 3rd and 4th floors.
