The tall commercial building is one of the great achievements of American culture, manifesting in physical structures the confluence of aesthetic taste, business objectives, and innovation in engineering and architectural design. In Pittsburgh—a quintessential skyscraper city—the evolution of tall commercial buildings in the United States can be observed simply by walking through Downtown. Our tour will take us to numerous landmarks or groups of structures that illustrate key concepts in the development of the skyscraper.
