The design for the Pittsburgh Museum of Steel focused on utilizing steel structure in a variety of forms: steel frames, tension cables, and vierendeel trusses. Programmed with interactive exhibits to showcase the manufacturing process of steel and the history of steelworkers in the United States, the museum features large, universal spaces allowing for maximum programmatic flexibility.
The design was primarily explored through hand-drafted plans and sections, as well as physical models.
