Recognize good work in the community! The Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture's Urban Design Build Studio, led by John Folan, teamed up with the Heinz Endowments on a recent project that represents more than just the project -- a wall -- in its physical form. 

The Endowments funded this film to be entered into the American Institute of Architect’s third annual I Look Up Film Challenge, which invites architects and filmmakers to collaborate in bringing architectural stories to life. This year’s challenge calls for films that highlight projects and architects that are helping to change communities for the better. 

The Title is: RE_DEMPTION: A Wall that Unites

A feature wall for The Heinz Endowments upholds PROJECT RE_’s mission to reuse materials, rebuild communities, and restore lives. Through PROJECT RE_, the Carnegie Mellon University Urban Design Build Studio designed a system that transformed scrap steel into something of value while facilitating fabrication training by Trade Institute of Pittsburgh welding students. Together, the partners built more than just a wall.
