2nd Annual Doors Open Pittsburgh
October 7 - October 8
October 7-8, 2017
Doors Open Pittsburgh is an annual two-day event that provides unique access to explore and experience a collection of iconic, and newly designed buildings in select neighborhoods of Pittsburgh – Downtown, Northside and the Strip District.
For the inaugural event in 2016, over 4,000 people visited 39 buildings in Downtown Pittsburgh.
This two-day event, which will be held October 7 & 8, 2017, is open to the Public. Doors Open Pittsburgh encourages curiosity, as the public is invited to explore and experience a collection of iconic buildings and newly designed spaces first-hand.
“DOP gives you a reason to explore buildings that you may never have been in, heard about or thought you knew. We want you to be nebby!” says Bonnie Baxter, founder of Doors Open Pittsburgh.
The collection will include some of our city’s great landmarks, including office buildings, private clubs, houses of worship, government offices, theaters, hotels, artist spaces and residential buildings that contribute to our City’s heritage and rich architectural landscape.
In 2016 this list included the Mayor’s Office, The Pennsylvanian, Allegheny HYP Club, Union Trust and Heinz Hall – all provided some degree of behind-the-scenes or experiential access.
Doors Open Pittsburgh 2017 will open approximately 69 buildings and spaces across these three neighborhoods: Downtown, Northside, Strip District.
The 2017 buildings include Dollar Bank, County Courthouse, Koppers Building, Nova Place, Bogg’s Mansion, Allegheny General Hospital. Total list is available at www.DoorsOpenPgh.org.
Attendees simply create their own itinerary from the 2017 Building list posted on the DOP website, buy tickets and show up! Reservations are not required; just show your ticket for entry at each building.
Once at a building, attendees will be greeted, can present their ticket and then be provided a semi-guided or fully-guided tour experience, or just the opportunity to explore.
We could really use your help to make this event possible again…please volunteer a few hours of your time!
