Grant St Pittsburgh
Whimsical ink drawing as archival print of (left to right) HOK‘s Oxford Center 1983: D.H. Burnham and Company’s Frick Building 1902; Mellon Bank Center 1984; H. H. Richardson’s Allegheny County Courthouse 1888: Henry Hornbostel’s City County Building 1917, Henry Hornbostel’s Grant Building 1929. Robert Qualter‘s sculpture of workers in foreground.
2016 was the 100th anniversary of Hornbostel‘s City County Building in Pittsburgh which was itself a 100th anniversary grand gesture of Pittsburgh’s incorporation in 1916! Do the math. 2016 was the 200th anniversary of Pittsburgh’s incorporation.
