2024 marks the twentieth year since Christine and Marc founded evolve to better connect architecture to the environment. This is a moment for us to celebrate our success and recommit to our values as we look forward to the next twenty years of evolving with you!
Station Area Planning enables the Port Authority to strategically manage its facilities and operations, and increase ridership by densifying urban nodes around transit stations and promoting healthy, active, car-free, and affordable lifestyles.
As we design transit stations, it is important to remember that for many people with disabilities, several barriers remain in navigating to and within the pedestrian environment. Ron Brooks will be talking at Mpact with Sarine Sahakian about wayfinding, universal design, technology and its challenges and opportunities.
evolve environment :: architecture and Riverlife were honored by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for the “Completing the Loop” plan, which outlines a 10-year vision to connect, enhance, and expand Pittsburgh’s network of riverfront parks, trails, and public green spaces.
evolveEA was engaged by Riverlife to lead the Completing the Loop effort, identifying projects and programs needed to complete and enhance the loop of parks and trails around Pittsburgh's riverfronts. The report will guide Riverlife in carrying out their initial vision for a connected network of green spaces accessible to all.
Building on SPC’s SmartMoves long range plan, evolveEA developed novel land use analysis tools to identify transit-supportive clusters throughout the region where new multimodal transit hubs could enable improved regional connectivity.
With leadership from evolveEA, Hazelwood Green is transforming into a low carbon development with aggressive energy, water, waste, and transportation goals, compliant with 2030 and P4 targets, and is to be certified under LEED for Neighborhood Development.
The Etna EcoDistrict is building on the successes and methods of neighboring ecodistricts and participating in the Triboro Ecodistrict. evolveEA designed a full year community education curriculum that explores key ecodistrict concepts of Water, Food, Energy, Air, Mobility, and Equity.
The Uptown neighborhood will see a transformation from parking lots to a multi-use development that includes affordable and market-rate housing, a bus rapid transit hub, and public art allowing opportunities for cultural expression. evolveEA led the masterplanning of the public spaces and is currently designing the public spaces with artists from the Hill and Uptown.
