School of Architecture and Planning Faculty Members to Contribute to Revitalization of Buffalo Harbor


Published September 2, 2013

Urban and regional planning faculty member Harry Warren, along with architecture faculty members Hiro Hata and Michael Williams, all of H+W Studio, have been retained as part of a team to design several facilities for the Canalside development project on the Buffalo waterfront.

The team is designing a multi-level restaurant and café building on the former Memorial Auditorium site, adjacent to the new canal construction. Additionally, HWS is designing an open-air multi-use pavilion on an adjacent parcel. Together these facilities will support the public use of the new Canalside areas. HWS is also studying an initial development proposal for a new building intended to house a Children’s Museum and potential office lease space.
