Buffalo to Welcome Architecture Center Next Spring
Visitors can’t help but stumble upon extraordinary American architecture when they explore the streets and neighborhoods of Buffalo. On one corner, there’s the detailed ornamentation of Louis Sullivan’s Guaranty Building, a prototype of the early American skyscraper. On another, there’s the 100-foot-long-pergola, floral filled conservatory and sweeping living spaces of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House Complex.
The Lipsey Architecture Center of Buffalo, set to open in the spring of 2019 within the National Historic Landmark Richardson Olmsted Campus, will tie all these buildings together by functioning as an “architectural concierge” for visitors through a series of interactive exhibits that celebrate the region’s renowned buildings and the architects that built them. Visitors will leave with information and inspiration to go out and explore these architectural treasures firsthand.
The center is the latest development at the rejuvenated campus, which welcomed the 88-room Hotel Henry Urban Resort and Conference Center in the spring of 2017, and serves as a capstone for the rejuvenation and restoration of Buffalo’s architectural treasures over the last generation.
