Location: Garfield, Pittsburgh, PA Date: Spring 2018 With: Professor Steve Lee & Mick McNutt
This studio project focused on working together with the leadership, teachers and students of the Environmental Charter School (ECS) in Pittsburgh to explore concepts for the design of their next generation of middle schools.
The building is to be the focal point of the garfield-bloomfield penn ave intersection. The site is surrounded by abandoned lots, a funeral home, and derelict residences. The building is to act as a symbol of what is possible in the future through the effors of non-profits such as the bloomfield-garfield corporation and their vision for the future of garifeld. This was to be articulated through the use of a facade system.
