Chatham Village, located in the City neighborhood of Mt. Washington, was commissioned by Pittsburgh’s Buhl Foundation and designed by New York City architect-planners Clarence Stein and Henry Wright. Built between 1931 and 1936 in response to a Depression-induced housing shortage, Chatham Village was the Foundation’s attempt to demonstrate that the private sector could develop high-quality, affordable housing for workers of moderate income and make a profit.

This special tour will be led by Angelique Bamberg, author of Chatham Village: Pittsburgh’s Garden City, and David Vater, an architect and long-time resident of Chatham Village. They will reveal not only the fascinating history of the remarkably well-preserved community of nearly 200 Colonial Revival residences, but also ways in which Stein and Wright’s brilliant design addresses some contemporary issues in sustainability and urban planning.

The tour will be followed by a small reception including cookies and refreshments.
