The Holocaust Center of Greater Pittsburgh, formerly located in Oakland, moved into a newly renovated space in Greenfield in October 2015. Springboard Design had the opportunity to design the organization’s new headquarters, which now accommodates ongoing educational programming and administrative space for the organization’s employees.
“Architect Paul Rosenblatt and his team from Springboard Design designed the center, which included a benchmarking process against other similar centers and engaging the stakeholders and community to help guide both the site selection and design process.” – See Full Article at NEXTPgh
The Grand Opening of the newly renovated Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh included the premiere of an original exhibition, “In Celebration of Life: Living Legacy Project.”
The Mission of the Holocaust Center is to transform community and individual attitudes and behaviors by recognizing, understanding and remembering the atrocities of the Holocaust. The Center uses the events of the Holocaust as a means to teach tolerance to middle and high school students in Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia. The Center engages with other organizations, individuals and institutions around programming and conversations as to the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust and its lessons. Finally, the Center works to memorialize and commemorate the legacy of those whose lives were impacted by the events of the Holocaust and the events themselves.
