Modernism Downtown Walking Tour

June 16, 2012 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Meeting location: Sixth Avenue and William Penn Way (hotel side)
Ending location: Point State Park

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.

$10 PHLF members; $15 non-members (The fee includes a cold refreshment.)

This tour is limited to 20 people. THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT!!!
