AIA Pittsburgh Design Award

Riverview Canopy

Open Plan, Award of Excellence, 2007

“Among the several reasons to admire the Pittsburgh AIA Chapter, the jury appreciated this “Open” Category to recognize good work subgenres. The Riverview Canopy seems just such a category buster. The simple task, which could be seen as an adjustment to a building without a weather protected entry walkway, instead took on a poetic program in an articulate form and a robust engineering aesthetic. The result provides a lovely place to wait in the rain, hearing and seeing it fall.”
