Mick McNutt, AIA works as a registered architect for EDGE studio and teaches as an adjunct faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University. During his several years of experience in various architectural firms he has contributed to the design of multiple building types including healthcare and education facilities, cultural institutions and commercial projects. His focus on urban design while studying at Syracuse University in New York and SU’s International Program in Florence, Italy provided him with the necessary experience to produce intelligent and engaging architectural responses to the historical context and social condition of cities. His education experience prior to receiving his M Arch included the study of poetry and film (theory) at the University of Pittsburgh allowing him to develop a sharp critical eye and clear artistic sensibility.
Mick is currently involved in the renovation of Benedum Hall, the School of Engineering at University of Pittsburgh, which includes the centralization of classrooms and library into a Teaching / Learning Center, the reconstruction of laboratory floors and administrative offices, and a “green” addition for the Mascaro Sustainability Initiative.
As a native Pittsburgher and perpetual traveler, Mick enjoys the study of the urban condition via analyses of collective memory, psychogeographical context and other ephemera of the city, its narrative and its inhabitants. He lives in Point Breeze with his wife and two sons.
