cityLIVE! courtyard series
Destroyed in a dramatic and highly-publicized implosion, the Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex has become a widespread symbol of failure amongst architects, politicians and policy makers. The Pruitt-Igoe Myth explores the social, economic and legislative issues that led to the decline of conventional public housing in America, and the city centers in which they resided, while tracing the personal and poignant narratives of several of the project’s residents.
Join us for the third of our cityLIVE! Courtyard Series films at 947 Liberty Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh. Admission is free and open to the public and snacks will be served!
Show up and show your love.
