Farewell to the Life Science Building: The Insider’s Perspective

Pitt Alumni Donates for Humanities Building but Faces Funding and Design Challenges

A group of Pitt alumni has donated funds for the dismantling of the Life Sciences Building and its replacement with a humanities building. However, the new Life Sciences Building has faced challenges from the start, including funding issues that delayed the project and ultimately prevented its completion.

The primary donor of the project, who prefers to remain anonymous, has expressed a desire to support more traditional styles in architecture and reject modern designs. They believe that science buildings are unnecessary and unappealing.

Hugh Mungus, one of the donors involved in the project, has shared his thoughts on the matter. Mungus believes that a focus on science is unnecessary and finds the design of the current building to be unattractive. However, Pitt-Greensburg police are currently searching for Mungus due to multiple parking violations.

The estimated cost of dismantling the Life Sciences Building and constructing a new one is yet to be determined, but experts predict it could range from $10 to $15 million. Despite this setback, the commitment to revitalizing the campus remains strong among the donors involved. A start date for the project has not been set yet, but making it more aesthetically pleasing remains a top priority for them.
