The Pittsburgh Modern Committee is pleased to invite you join us for an open-air, autumn afternoon walking tour of modern & brutalist architecture throughout Oakland and the University of Pittsburgh campus.
We'll explore more than ten sites designed during a span of over ten years, between 1962 and 1978.
For those who prefer to explore this intriguing neighborhood virtually ... look forward to our subsequent release of an online gallery of all sites, related reading recommendations, and digitized archival material!
1970s architecture is turning FIFTY. We're proud to be a part of Docomomo US National Tour Day 2020, devoted to the appreciation of modern architecture in the United States. We join the organization and participants around the country in exploring this year's theme, the 1970s turn 50.
