(hit "refresh" to get the most recent version of this page; click on photos for larger images)
|This geodesic dome house is larger and classier than most. It is probably not that old but the concept goes back to the 1960s. I did not make note of the address. If you know the location of this building, I'd love to hear from you. For more, see this website.|
|Mellon Arena [gone]
|The Mellon Arena was originally known as the Pittsburgh Civic Arena. It was built in 1961 and housed the Civic Light Opera until 1968. It was later used for hockey, wrestling, and concerts. The building featured a retractable dome made of six stainless steel panels. It was nicknamed "The Igloo". The Arena closed in 2010 and was demolished in 2012. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.|
|William A. Passavant Center
|William A. Passavant Center is located at Thiel College. The building was designed by Charles E. Stade and built in 1964. [map]|
