In June 2022, we launched a 10-part series of short videos to showcase Pittsburgh’s distinctive historic architecture. The series, titled “Past is Present” was meant to give viewers some insight into aspects of our city and region’s history and built environment. Through this series we profiled singular buildings, bridges and landmarks, and even how the landscape— hills, rivers, and valleys— help define the Pittsburgh aesthetic.
With this final episode, we take a broader look at the architecture of Pittsburgh and consider some of the themes and attributes that make this city and region an architectural gem. We hope you enjoyed the series, which we created as an aspect of our educational and advocacy programs.
