Thank You for a Successful Event!

Now that we have all recovered from an intense weekend of GI design, I just want to thank everyone once again for all their hard work.  What made this charrette especially successful was the caliber of design team members.  The designs and details were backed up by sound science, engineering, and design.  The planning committee was really impressed with the energy that everyone brought to the table.  In the coming weeks we will scan all the drawings so we are able to preserve the richness of the renderings and utilize them in future media.  We plan to develop an executive summary document that summarizes the event and includes all design material.

We feel confident that the charrette results will be able to capitalize on some real momentum to integrate GI into South 21st St and other streetscapes and neighborhoods throughout Pittsburgh.  A link to an article on the cover on the Local section of Monday’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
