First Look

Connect and Reflect

By Rebecca Rudell | Photographs by Douglas Levere

Ten unusual structures have entered the landscape at Buffalo’s Silo City—an abandoned grain elevator site turned event space—courtesy of one of UB’s freshman architecture studios. Playing with themes like solar path, wind flow and acoustics, the students designed and built the 8-by-8-foot wooden structures, collectively dubbed “Reflection Space.” These thoughtful installations allowed students to experience the design-build process from start to finish, and now encourage visitors to examine the hulking silos from a new perspective—or to just share a quiet moment with a friend.

I just read different articles from At Buffalo and found them to be very interesting and knowledgeable.  I hope this magazine will continue for a long time.
