The Buffalo News reports that Dennis Maher, clinical professor of architecture in the UB School of Architecture and Planning, and his students have been studying old architectural renderings and blueprints designed by August Minks who, as part of A. Minks & Son Architects, designed nearly 40 buildings in Buffalo more than a century ago. Maher bought the documents for $20 at an estate sale in Grand Island. "I've been collecting things for 20 years," Maher said. "The essence of a lot of my work is repurposing found things, and also thinking about the built environment. I was basically unfolding and unfurling the drawings and realizing what a treasure trove this is."
