Along with ~30 other architecture and planning schools worldwide, the Global Art Affairs Foundation and the European Cultural Centre invited the University at Buffalo to participate in an international exhibit, Time Space Existence, run in parallel to the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. The exhibition brings together more than 200 architects, artists and universities from around the world to provoke conversation on the most pressing challenges facing the discipline today. The school was recognized in its invitation for rooting design and planning education in research and intensive engagement with its host region.
The 15-minute documentary short is a pensive-yet-hopeful, intrepid-yet-candid glimpse of our city, and a bold visual expression of the history of the city and the work of our faculty and students. See it Through Buffalo offers an experience of the iconic and everyday sights and sounds of place, from wind turbines alongside abandoned industry, to the machines of new industry, to the delight of children at play in new urban landscapes. The immersive experience features a full-wall projection and a custom score by the award-winning Canadian composer Eli Bennett.
See it Through Buffalo presents a visual experience of our studios at work and the all-present context of Buffalo as our laboratory for learning, idea testing, and design contribution.
