So. It seems that 2 years later, my thesis is sparking some internet buzz and I thought that I would give you all an update. I successfully defended my thesis and graduated in 2012 with my Masters of Architecture and have just recently moved back home to the Burgh with my wife, Betsy, who is at Duquesne getting her PhD in Psychology. I am still figuring out what to do in back in Pittsburgh at the moment, though I have been interviewing at the different architecture firms around town. I hope to help the city in its urban renaissance in any way possible!

I know there are a lot of hurdles that the city (and state) would have to go through to implement a project so large. It would most likely cost many billion dollars. But we can't stop dreaming! Keep up the interest and maybe we can make a difference in the future. As Pittsburgh grows, we will need a plan for transit. IT HAS TO HAPPEN EVENTUALLY. It is important to have an idea of what to work towards so that we dont have to compromise a vision when forced to build out of necessity. Here is a plan, a goal, something to work towards!
