The Sustainable Post-Industrial City: Using Buffalo's Architectural Legacy for Growth and Vitality
10 Apr, 2013
8:15 am - 4:45 pm
Regency Ballroom, Hyatt Regency Buffalo

Buffalo began as a city of innovation, a place of experimentation and risk-taking, and today that legacy points us in new directions of growth. The SAH Buffalo Seminar considers historic preservation as a broad strategy that unites many players in urban revitalization, from community activists to nonprofit organizations, private developers, architects and planners, City Hall, and the State Historic Preservation Office. Moving beyond historic preservation as a purely academic or market-driven endeavor, participants in the seminar will consider preservation through the lenses of long-term urban, cultural, and economic sustainability.
