I love architecture and while I have not gone into the building, I loved seeing it from all over the city. It stands out from almost any view.

This is one of Pittsburgh's many amazing landmarks and can be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city. It's made completely of glass and will blow you away at the sheer size of it. There's plenty of places around where you can sit, relax and people watch. A must see for Architecture lovers.

We saw it in the day and then went back at night to see this beautiful building. At night we sat in the courtyard by the fountain watching the lights and the water. A work of Art. It is not to be missed if you go to Pittsburgh.

From every angle, the shimmering glass-enveloped building at One PPG Place that dominates Pittsburgh's skyline is especially memorable. Once headquarters for the Pittsburg Plate Glass (PPG) company, it still dazzles the onlooker, and forms the focal point of the six buildings that surround the square.

If you know Pittsburgh from its peak in the 1970's you will know that Pittsburgh used to have a downtown with many fascinating shops. Many were located where the PPG building would land. Some people might love the glass gumby cathedral, but I don't and I mourn the loss of the downtown Pittsburgh used to have.

This beautiful building dominates the skyline in the Point State Park section of Pittsburgh. I believe it's one of the first skyscrapers of the modern age and is sight to behold. Market square is at the foot of this building so you can take it all in while enjoying food/drink.

This is a building that was made to serve as headquarters for the Pittsburg Plate Glass (PPG) company. Not surprising, glass is the prominent feature of the building, as well as the numerous glass spires. The square where the building is located features a large fountain. The building is also very impressive when seen from Mount Washington, especially at night.

While PPG Place is a fantastic glass structure worth a look-see on it's own, the immediate area of Market Square is a place to linger. Have lunch with a friend or grab a beverage and a book and stay the entire afternoon if you wish. You can even cool off in the fountain if you need to.

From the moment we spotted this on the horizon my children declared it a crystal castle and we HAD to visit. The next few hours were consumed with running in and out of the dancing fountains. a great place to just sit and people watch.
