Durable and Democratic: The Story Behind the City of Pittsburgh's Frick Environmental Center
TRACK: Case Studies

Nestled in Pittsburgh’s Frick Park, the LBC-targeted Frick Environmental Center serves as a living classroom of environmental education, free and open to the public. The project is an extraordinary example of equity in architecture, reinforcing the notion that sustainability should be for people of all ages and backgrounds. Yet creating a facility that is democratic, detailed, AND durable requires innovative solutions, rigorous organization, and patience. Join the project team of this unique public facility for an in-depth case study focusing on equity, from concept through construction. Come away with ideas about promoting stewardship, designing for education, and building with durability.
