Now, on to the towers in Pittsburgh that are actual skyscrapers per the modern definition.

The magnificient Cathedral of Learning by the University of Pittsburgh.
163m (2nd tallest educational building in the world), completed: 1936

I'll dedicate an entire post about this beauty.
All pics from Wikipedia










Common room:


View from the top:



The cathedral has a number of "nationality rooms" with interiors according to the specified nation. New ones are still being added as well!

Chinese


Austrian


English


German


Etc, etc. There are too many great interior pictures to show here, so I greatly recommend visiting the Wikipedia page!

Great photos, TM_Germany, however please note that when using photos from Wikipedia you should credit the individual author of each image and not just Wikipedia.
