Join Architect David Vater, Susan Rademacher of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and Al Tannler and Louise Sturgess of PHLF on a tour of architectural landmarks and parks designed in the modernist style. We’ll explore Mellon Square, anchored by two 1950s skyscrapers designed by Harrison & Abramovitz; Gateway Center One, Two, Three, and Four; the former IBM Building and Hilton Hotel; and end in Point State Park. Al Tannler is researching a guidebook on twentieth-century architecture in Pittsburgh, to be published in 2013, so there will be new insights to share.
