Each year, the month of October features AIA Pittsburgh’s celebration of architecture and those who create it. It is once again time for Design Pittsburgh, our annual design competition, exhibit, gala, and awards ceremony. We are also honoring Lisa Schroeder, President and CEO of Riverlife, with AIA Pittsburgh’s Gold Medal for her contributions to good design. Looking for a way to reconnect with the architecture community? This is a great time to experience over 80 projects, meet up with other architects, and get inspired!
