students and community members at a lecture in Hayes Hall at the University at Buffalo as part of the school's public programs series

Every semester the School of Architecture and Planning invites distinguished architects and planners to campus for a series of public symposia, seminars and exhibitions. Convening practitioners, scholars, students and members of the community around the top issues facing our profession today, the program is a vibrant part of the intellectual life of the school.

Our spring 2019 program, Discursive Practices, presents the work of architects, urban planners, preservationists and historians whose approach to design bridges multiple territories of knowledge to create new work.
