Building Minds

"Building Minds": A still from the film, of the School of Architecture and Planning's studio spaces in Crosby Hall.

The locus of architecture and planning education—the studio—encourages playful learning, creative problem solving, and engaged collaboration, preparing students for the global challenges that lay ahead. Alongside motivated faculty, Buffalo's students work in newly renovated historic buildings, including Crosby, Hayes, and Parker Halls. Hayes Hall in particular serves as a metaphor for learning—embracing both tradition and innovation, while integrating knowledge, skills, and methods from a variety of domains.

Buffalo Public School third-graders dreamed up dwellings for outer space while eighth-graders planned tenements and factories as part of this year's Architecture + Education program. The program enlists faculty, students and alumni of the School of Architecture and Planning to introduce young people to architecture as a profession.
