Nearly half of Kideney Architects’ staff of 50 – including three of the firm’s four principals – are graduates of the School of Architecture and Planning. With an 89-year history, a collaborative, open culture, and an internship program that involves students in all aspects of the practice environment, it’s no wonder UB grads flock to the firm.

As chair of the John Eberhard Society, I wish to thank those who helped make this past fiscal year a record-breaker for the School. of Architecture and Planning. As you may know, gifts of $1,000 or more during each fiscal year qualify individuals and companies as members of the school’s leadership giving society, named after our founding dean. Annual contributions to the society fund student scholarships, propel faculty research, and finance vital educational and technological improvements in the school. In 2014-15, the school received more than 70 gifts of $1,000 or more, nearly twice as many as the previous year. Many gifts this year went to support the Solar Decathlon as our students compete to build the world’s best solar house. As a proud graduate and founding faculty member of the school, I am thrilled at this increased level of financial support.

Hyatt’s All Things Creative has been a go-to resource for generations of architectural students, providing architecture supply kits to freshmen and materials for faculty and special projects. Now the Buffalo business and longtime donor to the school is advancing the restoration and renewal of Hayes Hall, a UB icon and home to the school since 1975.
