These bronze sculptures are a tribute to the builders of Pittsburgh's two renaissances. The figures seem to be planning the next phase of construction that will further change the skyline. Mellon-Stuart, the construction company that commissioned this work, supplied the artist with photographs of two employees who inspired the figures. 

George Danhires (b. 1942) is a sculptor from Kent, Ohio.
