Live, Virtual Architecture Tour: Cultural District
Thursday, January 21
2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
The Penn-Liberty corridor in Downtown Pittsburgh is one of the best turn-of-the-20th-century retail and commercial districts in the Golden Triangle. Featuring numerous excellent examples of the Richardsonian Romanesque by local architects as well as sturdy, handsome structures designed by an owner working only with a builder, the district comprises a remarkable collection of historic buildings.
This tour focuses on a14-block area within the district that the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has transformed since 1984 from an area of derelict and underused buildings to a singular agglomeration of venues for the performing and visual arts. The Penn-Liberty Cultural District tour highlights historic preservation’s power to redefine and remake neighborhoods.
This live virtual tour will be held via Zoom Conference.
