Guild House East is home to 90 apartments for seniors and is a historical landmark for the postmodern architecture movement.

Born in Philadelphia and raised in the Quaker tradition, architect Robert Venturi was commissioned by Friends Neighborhood Guild to build Guild House from 1960-1963 out of a demonstrated need for communal housing to support low-income seniors.
