Homewood CEC, Center for Urban Education win architecture awards

Two construction projects at the University of Pittsburgh have been recognized in the annual awards from the Pittsburgh chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

The Community Engagement Center in Homewood won the Social Equity in Design Award for medium-sized projects. Jurors said of the project, which was designed by architecture firm Strada, “Homewood Community Engagement Center models a bridge between academic institutions and the communities that surround them – an invaluable stream for sharing resource towards more equitable communities.”

The Center for Urban Education’s offices in Posvar Hall, designed by Rothschild Doyno Collaborative, received a Certificate of Merit from AIA. The jury noted, “Center for Urban Education breaks away from the rigid geometry of the existing building and boldly resets its rules on spatial interaction within the academic setting.”
