Danish architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group is going to reinvent Pittsburgh's Lower Hill district via a highly ambitious project that will increase public space, improve transportation for cyclists and pedestrians and provide more living spaces.

The $500 million project plans to use twisted pathways to enable pedestrians and cyclists to enjoy gentle slopes that allow them to navigate the hilly area. This will give the area a unique character without compromising on the quality of life in any way. The development will be centered around a massive green space which will make for a pleasant addition to the developed urban environment in and around the existing area.

Ultimately, this project aims to revitalize and expand the uses of Pittsburgh's Lower Hill district without tampering with its unique character in any way.
