Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Try Street Terminal Building

Built in 1921 for the Keystone Grocery and Tea Company, a grocery chain that did not live a long life (Father Pitt has not been able to find any reference to it after 1927), this is now Shannon Hall, student housing for the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. It is a fine example of how a utilitarian building can be made, if not beautiful, at least not ugly, by well-worked-out proportions and a tasteful choice of materials.
