Inventionland is a Pittsburgh-based immersive work environment and idea incubator where creative projects are brought to life. Inventionland organizes tours for roughly 15,000 students, educators, designers, business professionals and inventors every year. The facility was created to inspire creativity, promote innovation, and foster education.
Inventionland was conceived by George Davison. Nathan Field served as the executive creative coach, and Joey Warren acted as senior concept designer. According to George Davison, his intention in building Inventionland was to provide a creative work environment in which artists, graphic designers, industrial designers and others could design, develop and create prototypes.
