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

A group of Pitt alumni has made a generous contribution to the university to dismantle the Life Sciences Building and replace it with a humanities building. The new Life Sciences Building has faced numerous challenges from the beginning, including funding issues that delayed its start and ultimately prevented its completion.

The donors involved in the project have chosen to remain anonymous, but one member, Hugh Mungus, has shared his thoughts on the matter. Mungus believes that a building focused on science is unnecessary and finds the design of the current building to be unattractive. However, Mungus is not wanted by Pitt-Greensburg police due to multiple parking violations.

The estimated cost of dismantling the Life Sciences Building and constructing a new one has not yet been determined, but experts predict it could range from $10 to $15 million. The primary donor of the project prefers to keep their identity private but expressed a desire to support further renovation of the campus in favor of traditional styles over modern architecture.

As of now, no start date for the project has been set, but revitalizing the campus and making it more aesthetically pleasing remains a top priority for all donors involved in this project.
