University of Pittsburgh – Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence

Hayes Design Group Architects provided a conceptual schematic design for a new entrance and reception space for Pitt’s Institute For Entrepreneurial Excellence (IEE) which was housed within the much larger Wesley Posvar Hall (formerly the Forbes Quadrangle). The directive was to create a dynamic entrance, so that it would be distinctive as part of the main lobby area of the building. The design theme for the entrance was then to be brought into the interior of the reception area. Once a conceptual design was approved, HDG was charged with developing a simple presentation drawing to convey the design intent to prospective donors.
