The School of Architecture and Planning resides on the
university’s historic South Campus. Our state-of-the-art
facilities include Hayes Hall, a nationally significant
architectural landmark that reopened in 2016 after a comprehensive
renovation that sets standards in historic preservation,
inspirational design and sustainability. Our primary undergraduate
studio spaces are held in Crosby Hall, now undergoing a renovation
to its interior. Research and fabrication facilities offer the
latest digital technologies, printing services and a fully-equipped
materials and methods shop, allowing students to
visualize, fabricate and develop their ideas and skills.
The School of Architecture and Planning's historic home in Hayes Hall reopened in 2016 after a $45 million restoration that has revived an iconic landmark for UB and created a flexible, dynamic learning environment for future architects and planners.
The Digital Workshop in the School of Architecture and Planning is now located in Parker Hall, Room 2. It provides a range of the latest equipment dedicated to material research, model making and fabrication.
The Materials and Methods Shop, a complete machine and assembly shop and one of the finest in any U.S. architecture school, contains 7,000 square feet of high-bay space and equipment ranging from planers to plasma cutters.
