The High Point Park Investigation & Pittsburgh Gigapanorama Project

Open House Invitation

Please join us on April 22 (Earth Day 2010) from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Fine Arts Building on the Carnegie Mellon University campus as we unveil a new perspective of the region.

The Pittsburgh Gigapanorama is an awesome, interactive, 360-degree photographic image of southwestern Pennsylvania taken from the roof of the U. S. Steel Tower and one of the largest digital photographs ever created.

In addition to this remarkable image, we will be acknowledging the participants and products of the recent High Point Park Design Sketch/Case Competition, during which more than 350 CMU students and faculty members imagined the creation of a publicly-accessible, sustainable facility on the U. S. Steel Tower’s roof, a one-acre expanse that is the largest, highest space on top of any building on Earth. 
We will also preview “The Roof of the World” an independent documentary video shot during the January competitions, as well as display the 32 architectural design sketches and 5 business case studies they produced.

This event is an open house and you may bring guests, but please RSVP by April 20 with attendees’ names.

If you are unable to attend on Thursday, the Gigapanorama, documentary, and other exhibits can be seen at the STUDIO at 1:00 and 3:00 on Friday, April 23.
