Recurring Event Event Series: Carnegie Mellon Campus Tour

Carnegie Mellon Campus Tour

Sunday, September 18 | 2:00 pm 3:30 pm

Andrew Carnegie’s gift of a technical school in Schenley Park has grown into a university that is recognized internationally in technology and the arts. On this tour, we will visit the early 20th century buildings designed by Henry Hornbostel, alongside buildings of the postwar modern period as well as today’s newer sustainable buildings and other green campus features.


Paul Tellers is an architect and planner. He was the University Architect at Carnegie Mellon University, the Director of Planning at WTW Architects, the Facilities Planning Director for a CUNY college in New York, and a Project Manager for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. Paul serves as a guide for historical Pittsburgh tours for the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, Rivers of Steel, Bike the Burgh, and DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh.
