Trinity Cathedral Burying Ground

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

An inter-disciplinary collaboration addressing landscape redesign and monument conservation.

 

One of the oldest sites in the city and region, Trinity Burial Ground is unmatched in terms of its historical and cultural significance in the founding of Pittsburgh. It is also one of the few remaining green spaces in the city's downtown, serving as a retreat from the high-rise office buildings in the surrounding business district. Aiming to revitalize this significant urban landscape as an urban oasis, the Trinity Cathedral Burial Ground Stone Conservation Project is an inter-disciplinary collaboration addressing landscape redesign as well as conservation of the grave markers and monuments.
