The China Gate
1984 by Sabrina Soong with Chinese engineers and artisans

The large Chinese characters on The China Gate translate as “Philadelphia Chinatown.”

Community members collaborated with architect Sabrina Soong to plan the grand gateway for Chinatown. The brightly painted portal follows a traditional Qing Dynasty style, using tiles from Philadelphia’s sister city, Tianjin. Engineers and artisans from China did the construction.
