Site Tour of the PIT Terminal Modernization Program

On Thursday, June 27, we met at the airport and took a fascinating journey!

CMAA3R PIT Site Tour group photo

Scott Ellis of HDR, and Joseph Cornell of Jacobsen|Daniels guided us through Pittsburgh International Airport's Terminal Modernization Program. 13 members of our Chapter spent the afternoon walking the site with Scott and Joe. They discussed goals, progress, and the tricky logistics for this project, as well as briefing us on the Nature-Technology-Community (NaTeCo) design theme.

We saw everything from siren-sensing emergency lights and outdoor green spaces, to the prominent spot reserved for “Pittsburgh,” the beloved mobile that Alexander Calder created in 1958. Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge with us!
