The Men Behind Pittsburgh's First Renaissance

The Tribune Review posted an interesting story recently detailing the careers of the architects who were behind Pittsburgh's first downtown building renaissance in the 1950's & 1960's.  This was the period of time which saw the clearing of Pittsburgh's point to create Point State Park, as well as Gateway Center, Mellon Square Park, the Civic Arena (pictured under construction), the old Hilton (now the Wyndham Grand) and many other landmarks which have helped pave Pittsburgh's way from dirty industrial town to a transformative city for the new millenium.
