PITTSBURGH: The American Institute of Architects, Pittsburgh Chapter, has presented an Award of Excellence in the category of Engineering and Science for Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus storm and waste water management systems.
In commenting on the award, the judges said, “This project reminds us of the importance of water, and also basic and natural technologies that are highly effective. The complete built project functions as an efficient machine while never giving the appearance of being a machine. As a first phase of a proposed new campus, the standards are already set impressively high.”
PITTSBURGH: Chatham University and the Falk School of Sustainability will be hosting the “Bridging the Past, Cultivating the Future: Exploring Sustainable Foodscapes” event from June 24-28th.
