After a successful practice designing traditional residential architecture, George Howe teamed with Swiss architect William Lescaze and designed the landmark Philadelphia Savings Fund Society Building at 12th and Market Streets in Philadelphia. After the partners split in 1932, Howe continued to work in Philadelphia, designing private residences and housing developments that he worked on in association with Louis I. Kahn and Oscar Stonorov.
