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.
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 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
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.
