AIA Pittsburgh Design Award

The Chevron Chemistry Annex at the University of Pittsburgh has won an Architecture Honor Award in the Design Pittsburgh 2012 competition.

Jury Comments: This is an example of a very skillful addition to an existing building. Done in the air rights of the original building the new structure appears to float above the old. The thoughtful use of materials for the interior spaces warms up what is usually a cold space and breaks the traditional lab feel. The sunscreens above the windows is a wonderful detail. The architect very successfully belies the white coat building feel.
