Pittsburghius Architecturus by John Alexander About the Design
John Alexander's love of Pittsburgh's architecture inspired his "Pittsburghius Architectaurus."  Incorporating buildings from the past and present, the right side view depicts architecture that is still standing in the city, while the left side view shows architecture that is no longer a part of Pittsburgh.

The green of the dinosaur's feet, spikes and head represent the forests of "Penn's Woods," and the rounded green behind the architectural I've been adopted!elements represents the rolling hills of Pittsburgh.  The blue of the back plates represents the vistas and rivers that surround the city.
