For its production of "The Master Builder," Quantum Theatre has collaborated with the Heinz Architectural Center of the Carnegie Museum of Art to take over the ninth floor of 100 South Commons, 2 Allegheny Center Building -- the new Nova Place -- and offer theater-goers an classic play along with 360-degree views of the city. The center has been celebrating the modernist influence on Pittsburgh's cityscape, and with that in mind, Quantum has reset the play from the late 1800s to mid-20th century, reflected in the production's skyline backdrop. Other views offer spectacular sunsets over the North Side and the Allegheny Commons, including The Carnegie Free Library of Allegheny and the New Hazlett Theater -- built while Henrik Ibsen, often referred to as the father of modern drama, was writing "The Master Builder."
