  • Mid-century Modern (1950–1960) — Pittsburgh was resurgent and booming at the height of modernism with innovative headquarters designed by Mies van der Rohe, Harris & Ambramovitz, and more. By incorporating textiles and furniture from Knoll, Eames, and Emeco, the design reflects this period’s uniquely innovative design and engineering.
  • Mass Custom Fabrication (2010–2020) — As the development of robotics and manufacturing within the region booms, tech companies like our client, are considering their role in the future of the city. The design incorporates this vision for the future with custom textural additions realized through 3-D printing, parametric modeling, and CNC prototyping technologies.
