Pittsburgh Design Firm Builds New Creative Work Environment Complete With a Tree House to Foster Creativity
PITTSBURGH, November 13, 2006 /PRNewswire/ -- Very few CEOs can say they work in a tree house, unless they're George M. Davison III, CEO and founder of Davison Design and Development.
The product design firm recently opened InventionLand, an innovative workspace designed inside its Pittsburgh warehouse to foster creativity among its staff, known as Inventionmen.
The more than 60,000 square foot facility uniquely features waterfalls, moats and offices on the deck of a "pirate ship," in a faux cave and in a castle. The one-of-a-kind facility was built almost entirely in-house.
"Get creative people out of cubes," said Davison, who founded the company in a basement in 1989. "If I'm going to ask these people to put their hearts, bodies and souls into a project, I'm going to recognize that, because that's a heck of a sacrifice. So, I wanted to give them the best possible place to create in."
InventionLand is composed of 15 departments divided by focus, including automotive, outdoors, juvenile, home and toys. Each department is designed to increase creativity and to offer an environment where the products being designed, created and engineered can be used, tested and photographed in-house.
Davison spends most of his time in Thinktank Treehouse, a workspace suspended on a large faux tree above a stream fed from a waterfall in the rear of the environment.
"InventionLand is made to inspire creative people," Davison explained. "It was built to move belief out of the intangible mental realm and into the physical world. If you're walking in it and living in it, it's easier to be creative. It's more than a place, it's a state of mind."
In addition to the unique, creative environments, InventionLand is part of Davison's factory, producing about 200 new product samples every month. The factory focuses on package samples, prototyping and product construction. For additional information on InventionLand visit InventionLand****.

American Artist David Hart
Made Possible Through Generous Support
from the Colcom Foundation
Heads are up around town! The Pittsburgh Festival of Lights has generated so much excitement and interest from recent visitors to downtown Pittsburgh that it has been held over through July 8th. The Festival of Lights was made possible through the generous support of Pittsburgh-based Colcom Foundation.
"The public reaction to Pittsburgh Festival of Lights has been incredibly positive. We are grateful that Colcom Foundation's support not only made this unique lighting display possible but has enabled its extension through the Fourth of July holiday," said Marguerite Jarrett Marks, director of Pittsburgh Celebrates Glass.
During Pittsburgh Festival of Lights, downtown buildings are transformed into large scale works of arts, illuminated with rich colors, shapes and textures inspired by glass. Described by noted French lighting designer Lucette de Rugy as a "new expression of accessible art", it is all a part of Pittsburgh Celebrates Glass! a year-long collaboration of more than 70 cultural, civic and community partners designed to get local residents and tourists to experience the region's tremendous array of arts, events and activities.

Experience Pittsburgh's vibrant Cultural District
In contention for this year's dramatic prize at Sundance Film Festival, 'The Mysteries of PIttsburgh,' is a film adaptation of Michael Chabon's highly lauded novel of the same name.
Part One of "An Oral History of Islam in Pittsburgh" examines the evolution of Islam in Pittsburgh beginning with migrant ex-slaves in the post Civil War era, to the early twentieth century, when indigenous Muslims began collecting pieces of Islam to form their own communities. The film looks at pseudo-Islamic movements such as the Moorish Science Temple and the Nation of Islam, in addition to off-shoots of traditional Islam such as the Ahmadiyah movement, which were all part of Islam's evolution in the city's indigenous Muslim population.
Time is spent to examine the contributions of Dr. Yousef Khan, a man largely responsible for migrating members of Pittsburgh's Moorish Science Temple to a more traditional Islam.
Part two of this documentary looks at the Nation of Islam's relationship in Pittsburgh, including frequent visits by Malcolm X, and the nation's evolution toward a more traditional Islam.
Finally, the film moves to the 70's and early 80's, when immigrant Muslims began to intermingle with indigenous Muslims and form their own communities. Also, time is spent to look at Muslims' current situation in Pittsburgh and search for solutions to improve the Muslim community.
