2020 Best of Design Award for Landscape: Mill 19 at Hazelwood Green
Designer: TEN x TEN

Nested within the armature of a former steel mill along Pittsburgh’s Monongahela River, three new mixed-use buildings are integrated in the shadows of trusses clad with a photovoltaic array. The quarter-mile-long structure celebrates the history of labor and the potential of a revitalized future while creating new landscapes from industrial remnants. An event plaza, a stormwater channel, disturbance-adapted gardens, and a public loggia with salvaged steel furniture define a reimagined public realm that embraces the past.
Mill 19, an LEED v4 Gold–certified project, lays the groundwork for a new type of regional economic hub that celebrates Pittsburgh’s industrial legacy, initiates renewal, and rebuilds a healthy relationship between the community, the site, and the river.
