In today’s episode:

My guest this episode is Richard Piacentini, the CEO of Phipps Conservatory. Mr. Piacentini took the reigns in 1994, and has helped Phipps to lead the way in sustainable landscape and construction, starting with the Center for Sustainable Landscapes, opened in 2012 and considered at the time the greenest building in the world, and most recently the Exhibit Staging Center. We all love Phipps for it’s beautiful flowers, shows and atmosphere. It’s truly a gem in our region. But… there’s so much more to Phipps’ mission. We discuss that on this podcast. You can find out more about green innovation and Phipps on their website, right here.

Postindustrial, Pittsburgh Beautiful, Chris Klein

Chris Klein roots are from Pittsburgh, and his grandmother was born in Castle Shannon in the early 1900’s. Pittsburgh in the early 20th Century, while booming and bustling, was a dirty place. Not so today! Pittsburgh moved him. He loves to capture beauty in unique ways and was inspired to create Pittsburgh Beautiful as a way to share that with everyone.
