The 24,000-square-foot Education Wing and renovated Parish Hall of Pittsburgh's Church of the Ascension deliberately avoid replicating details from the 1897 church. Connections and spaces between the old and new buildings form outdoor rooms similar to cloisters and create inspirational backdrops for celebratory and contemplative activities.
