The Alcoa Building and Mellon Square were selected for the 2018 Timeless Award by the AIA Pennsylvania at their recent Awards Ceremony. The Timeless Award is given to architecture which has endured the test of time and still resonates with the design community and the public.
Mitchell & Ritchey a predecessor firm to DRS Architects, designed Mellon Square and served as local architects to Harrison & Abramovitz on the design of the Alcoa Headquarters Building. DRS was one of the firms honored during the ceremony receiving recognition for the Timeless Award. As DRS approaches its 60th Anniversary, receiving the Timeless Award truly demonstrates our continuing commitment to providing excellent architecture and designing a sustainable future.
