University of Pittsburgh | Hillman Library
In 1997, Celli-Flynn Brennan received the “Timeless Award” from the Pennsylvania Society of Architects for the Hillman Library at the University of Pittsburgh. CFB functioned as coordinating architects in the development of this building, which opened in 1967. The award was received for a building that had stood the “test of time” particularly well – still performing its original function with what is considered a fresh architecture thirty years after completion.
Recently, CFB completed the design for a $25 million, renovation to the building and plaza. When the building renovation is complete, this major research library will have 1300 seats, new elevators, new stacks, group study areas, and a new entrance pavilion.
