Pittsburgh Magazine: Riverlife Announces Plans To Restore Allegheny Riverfront Park
Modular International is grateful to be a part of the restoration of Allegheny Riverfront Park.
“One of Downtown Pittsburgh’s parks is getting a facelift.
Allegheny Riverfront Park was first dedicated in 2001, touted as much-needed cartilage connecting Pittsburgh’s Cultural District across a barrier of roadways and bridges to the Allegheny River. But time took its toll on the space, and its restoration was the topic of a virtual event held yesterday morning, hosted by the nonprofit Riverlife.
“Allegheny Riverfront Park: The Origins and Future of a Cultural Landscape” featured panelists Carol Brown, former president and CEO of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, along with Michael Van Valkenburgh, founder and creative director of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. — the landscape architecture firm hired by the Trust to design Allegheny Riverfront Park in the 1990s. The session was moderated by Riverlife President and CEO Matthew Galluzzo.”
