Building Buffalo, Green & Wicks Architects Tour
The firm of Green & Wicks (1882-1917) coincided with Buffalo’s Golden Age. W.S. Wicks (1854-1919) and E.B. Green (1855-1950) were Buffalo’s most distinguished architects of the period. The firm had dozens of major commissions, many of them superb examples of their type, whether office building, hotel, apartment building or grandiose mansion. The number and quality of its commissions is staggering: Buffalo Savings Bank, The Market Arcade, half of “Millionaire’s Row,” the Twentieth Century Club, the American Radiator factory, the Marine Bank, the Buffalo AKG Art Museum, department stores, and more.
Join Campaign for Greater Buffalo president Paul McDonnell, who is also the incoming president of the American Institute of Architects: New York, to explore fine structures of wood, brick, and stone, prominently sited or tucked away on side streets, radiating charm and poise. Join Paul as he hunts down dozens of the buildings and tell the tales of the people who lived, worked, worshiped, and socialized there.
