Why do architecture students from around the world travel to Buffalo to see its architecture? Because significant examples by almost every iconic architect from every style and era can be found here. Richardson, Sullivan, Wright, Upjohn, the Saarinens, Yamasaki, Stone, Rudolph, Burnham, Bunshaft, Pei and the largest Olmsted-designed park system in the world are all featured here. Take a visual tour of Buffalo’s architectural story with the city’s leading architectural historian, Martin Wachadlo. Martin will weave his magic in Trinity Episcopal Church – a classic example of late nineteenth century architecture that holds a collection of work by two of America’s greatest stained glass window designers, La Farge and Tiffany, which will be open for viewing.
(This is event is part of the "Queen City Pop-Ups" for 2018. Buffalo got the nickname “Queen City” at the turn of the 20th century for being the second largest city in New York State and its most prosperous. Today, with Buffalo undergoing a remarkable architectural and economic renaissance, primarily due to the adaptive reuse of historic buildings, we would like to offer APT conference-goers unique opportunities throughout the conference to experience Buffalo’s world-class architecture and hip culture. Pop-Ups are free to attend, offering out-of-the-box fun, events. Be prepared to be wowed! (Pop-Ups will not provide continuing education credits.)
