Bohlin Cywinski Projects Awarded at AIA Design Pittsburgh Gala

Two Bohlin Cywinski Jackson projects took home awards at AIA Pittsburgh's annual celebration of design, held October 27 at the August Wilson Center.

Under Armour’s Building 37, the adaptive reuse of a vacated Sam’s Club, was awarded an Honor Award in Interior Architecture. Project team members Matt Huber and Drew Balzer accepted the award. Other team members include: Frank Grauman, FAIA, Michael D. Maiese, AIA, Robert T. Aumer, Jr., AIA, Andrew Moroz, Monica Barton, Wolfram Arendt, Nora Chase, Lauren Powers, John Phung, and Thomas Breslin. The jury remarked that this project “is a prime example of the many opportunities and benefits that can be found in repurposing vacant big-box retail spaces. The mezzanine is deployed creatively to create density and spatial modulation, leveraging the existing retail condition. The program has been effectively deployed around a communal volume of ‘found space.’ Using a simple material palette, lighting variations, and bright colors, the architects did an incredible job of transforming the original structure into an energizing, state-of-the-art work environment. It’s expertly edited, narrated, and presented.”

Highmeadow at Fallingwater, a group of modest summer residencesfor the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s Fallingwater Institute programs in art, architecture, and design, was awarded a Certificate of Merit. Bill James and Kent Suhrbier accepted the award. Peter Q. Bohlin was the Principal for Design on the project. The jury felt this project is “a well-crafted project that elegantly sets itself along the edge of the landscape. The reuse of the spruce material from the site was thoughtfully considered as a thread linking the project’s components. The development of the parti as an extension of the path linking Fallingwater through the landscape was also particularly successful. Great presentation and photography.”
