Theme: Integrating traditions of the past into modern design
  Aerodynamic, by Jason Gotsch About the Design
What would a dinosaur look like if it had evolved in an urban setting, among steel and concrete, instead of rocks and prehistoric vegetation? The dinosaur has become a metaphor of the past, demonstrating what once was.  Gotsch's work embraces this concept and integrates traditions of the past into modern design. His design represents a techno-pet blended with sport cars.

About the Sponsaur
Originally the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad yards, this historic site was adopted by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation in 1976. Today it is a thriving shopping, dining, and entertainment complex that houses over 50 specialty shops, restaurants and Sold!cafes.

Kept in the spirit of its heritage, special care has been taken to restore the unique architecture and atmosphere

of the original railroad buildings on the site. The Shops at Station Square are contained in two historic buildings, both dating back to the late 1800's, and the old railroad headquarters has been converted into the elegant Grand Concourse Restaurant. Jason Gotsch

With over eighteen restaurants, Station Square offers a wide variety of cuisines. The shops at Station Square offer more than 40 unique boutiques and specialty stores. Best viewed from Bessemer Court and the Riverwalk, from a deluxe guest room at the Sheraton Hotel, and from one of the Gateway Clipper Fleet’s cruise ships.
