as a bridging element through the ceiling planes. "We took our cues from hospitality," explains Guerrero. "We wanted to create moments in space by playing with light levels to create moods, with contrasts in light and dark." Numerous spaces are crisp white, with the light fixtures hidden to create a glow without visual distraction. Linear spaces incorporate interspersed downlights that evoke computer coding of dots and dashes. Ultimately, the ATG Center is more than a workplace; it's a laboratory where the future is forged. "This project is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for designers," Cherry says. "We were excited to learn more about the city of Pittsburgh and help redefine what the future of all cities will be." Meyhofer points to the impact that the futureforward interiors have on the Uber employees. "The building elevates people and makes them want to perform at the level of the space," he says. "This space sets the bar very high, and people get it. They want to be here." c Uber Advanced Technologies Group Center Interior Designer Assembly Design Studio Architect of Record Strada Client Uber Where Pittsburgh What 80,000 total square feet on two floors Cost/sf Withheld at client's request who Assembly project team: Denise Cherry; Liz Guerrero; Justin Ackerman; Sarah Dziuba; Hilary Hanhan; David Hunter; Alma Lopez; Jeorge Jordan.
