Nice pics, thanks for posting. I was curious what is the interesting looking structure near the bridge?

^My guess would be the convention center.

BTW, great pictures, Pittsburgh looks great!

The strange looking building is indeed the new convention center.

Also, of course the pics are all original.

It sure is a nice convention center.

The PPG complex is truly an extravagant piece of architecture with its gothic postmodern feel. I really like Pittsburgh and the pictures are very good. Someday I would really like to venture to Pittsburgh.

My favorite views of my favorite city.

Cathedral of Learning in Oakland. It's fun to go up to the 34th floor and feel the building shudder in the wind.

I like the Cathedral of Learning way off in the distance... Pittsburgh has great long vistas

I think this is the City-County building. The mayor wears a suit of armor, you know.

One thing I love about downtown Pittsburgh is the great sightlines

I love how the curve of the convention center mimics that of the sisters bridges.

Ahhhhhh, Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh looks a bit nicer than I thought. I always thought it was some run-down dump that was going nowhere. I wish the best of luck for Pittsburgh's rather optimistic future.
