Mission Statement

The Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center (LBAC) explores excellence in architecture and city planning as demonstrated by Buffalo’s outstanding architectural heritage. Located in the Richardson Olmsted Campus, the LBAC will provide orientation, prompt inspiration, and serve as a gathering place to launch new ideas related to architecture, landscape, and design. Through exhibitions, tours, programs, and outreach, the LBAC engages the public in Buffalo’s architecture, landscape design, and urban planning, and its role in culture and design literacy.

The LBAC fosters collaboration with organizations with the similar goal of activating Buffalo’s architecture, planning, and landscape. By providing a center to host exhibitions, events, and programs, the LBAC actively collaborates with aligned groups in dialogue and shared programming.

The Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center: Richardson Center Corporation Institutional, Operational and Pre-Development Planning Report was created by Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership in association with ConsultEcon, Inc in 2011.
