UB School of Architecture to Get Its Own Redesign

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo has announced a restoration and renewal project for the School of Architecture and Planning on the university's South Campus.  

The school is housed in Hayes Hall and Crosby Hall -- two of the most historic structures and iconic buildings at UB. Through the utilization of New York State critical maintenance funds, this $50 million project will preserve the historic exteriors of the buildings while creating academic spaces befitting a 21st century school of architecture and planning.

"This is an inspiring initiative," said Brian Carter, dean of the UB School of Architecture and Planning.
