AIA Pittsburgh Design Award
Young Architects Competition Studio
The idea behind Ars Moriendi, by Jason Andrews, was largely a religious one, designed to prepare a soul for an eternal afterlife based on his own current experience with his father.
The jury commented:
- The designer portrayed a great understanding of the design criteria while meeting an immediate physical and psychological need for themselves, and a dear family member. The level of clarity and communicating the intent was outstanding. The design provided flexibility and serenity in a quickly changing world and was also representative of the fragility of our transient lives and captured how important our human connections with each other in our surroundings truly are.
