Showcasing architectural plans for the High Point Project during the festival is David Bear, the organizer of The High Point Pittsburgh Investigation . Centered at the Studio of Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University, High Point Pittsburgh is an on-going project exploring the possibilities for transforming the one-acre rooftop of the 64-story USX Tower into a publicly accessible, four season facility that will function as a world-class visitor center and downtown attraction while also demonstrating cutting-edge sustainable design and technologies.
The proposed two-story structure would cover the entire roof area and top of the building,
creating more than 60,000 square feet of interior space on two levels and be made entirely of steel and glass. See the plans and meet the organizer, Mr. Bear on Friday, April 5 at Edge Studio. See High Point Pittsburgh Video at the left of this blog.(Event hours TBA)
