Alayna Jordan is a graduate of the Architectural Studies program at University of Pittsburgh. Besides her recent experience with Preservation Pittsburgh, she has interned locally with Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation as well as the Technical Preservation Services division of the National Park Service in Washington D.C.. In November 2016, Alayna was awarded the Diversity Scholarship to attend the PastForward Conference in Houston, TX. She hopes to remain enthusiastic and enamored with the built environment in her new residence of San Antonio, TX.
With Preservation Pittsburgh, Alayna focused on researching the Tufa Bridges of Schenley Park in light of the thematic nomination of Pittsburgh’s springs. Despite little correlation to the springs, the Tufa Bridges became a phenomenal story to tell nonetheless, with characteristics connecting to Phipps Conservatory, political turmoil, urban renewal, tragedy, and a former resort. Her research proved to be worthy of a local historic nomination for the city of Pittsburgh. She honestly can’t get enough of that Tufa!
