Theater Square and Cultural Trust Service Center, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural District is a study in urban revival. Spurred by the efforts of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, a 12-block area in the central business district has undergone a transition to become the premiere location for arts-related theaters, performance centers, and galleries. The latest addition is Theater Square, which will provide a street-level central ticketing office and arts information center for all cultural venues within the area.
WTW Architects is the architect-of-record for the project which also includes a 4,500-square-foot retail space and a 200-seat cabaret theater. The upper floors will house 790 parking spaces on ten levels. WTW worked closely with design consultant Michael Graves and Associates in detailing the building’s facade to complement the adjacent O’Reilly theater.
