As a kid, Mick loved exploring downtown Pittsburgh with his grandmother. She’d talk her way into buildings that were closed so her grandson could experience the city’s hidden spaces or simply take in a fantastic view. Her open, curious nature informs Mick’s inquisitive, collaborative approach to architecture. Her legacy also inspires him to bring impact to every project. In addition to his work on the University of Pittsburgh’s Hillman Library transformation and their Student Success and Development Center, Mick is the co-founder of DIS, GBBN’s annual Design Issues Series.
