The Design Pittsburgh People's Choice Award is your opportunity to weigh in on some of the recently designed (or redesigned) places and spaces in our community. Architecture is a part of our daily environment and we want to hear from you what good design means to you.
As you look through the projects submitted, ask yourself: Does the project inspire you? Would you enjoy spending time in that space? How does the project enhance or serve our community?
Reynolds Hall John Chambers School of Business and Economics is a newly constructed 168,000 square-foot addition to the West Virginia University (WVU) campus, featuring a double-height entry lobby complete with a massive social stair and a suspended Ideation Hub that floats above like a treehouse, as well as a 350-seat lecture hall and a fitness center.
The University’s goal was to write their next chapter in business education in a new home, transforming the campus by adding cutting edge technology and programs for WVU students, while paying homage to the Stansbury Hall site, a former basketball arena deeply rooted in the community and culture of the campus.
