An effort to engage School of Architecture and Planning faculty
and students in finishing their newly renovated home in UB's Hayes
Hall has yielded architectural innovation in perhaps the most
functional and mundane of spaces - the mailroom.
Five years in the making, the renovated Hayes Hall will reopen
to students next fall and once again serve as the heart of
UB’s South Campus. Join us for the ribbon-cutting
ceremony on Sept. 23, as well as for exhibits, symposia, building
tours and much more to be held Sept. 23-24.
The school invites faculty, students and practitioners to submit proposals for the design and fabrication of Hayes Hall faculty mailboxes, in collaboration with Boston Valley Terra Cotta. We welcome proposals which thoughtfully explore function using space, material and process to create an identity of making.
The Hayes Hall clock tower, freshly painted, gleamed in the August sun. Addressing the crowd, Dean Robert Shibley made a Babe Ruth gesture to the iconic clock tower: “We’ve waited long enough, folks. By 2015, we’re going home.”
The $50.5 million restoration of Hayes and Crosby Hall, home to
the School of Architecture and Planning for the past 40 years, will
preserve the exteriors of these iconic structures and make them
more efficient, sustainable and beautiful.
