Industrial Heritage in the Working Landscape

Industrial Heritage in the Working Landscape

Urban Design Project

"Industrial Heritage in the Working Landscape", a symposium on October 12, 2002, will focus on the outstanding collection of Grain Elevators located in Buffalo, NY. Many of them lie vacant; some are still working. The question to be explored is how does one preserve and interpret the remains of industrial landscapes that lie in the midst of a continuing industry that is a fraction of itself? Examples from other cities such as Cleveland will be explored as a part of the conference.

The Conference will be at the Erie County Community College Downtown Campus from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with a boat tour along the Buffalo River to see the elevators from 3:00 to 5:00. The cost of $50 includes food and the boat tour. For information, visit the Urban Design Project website at The symposium is sponsored by the Urban Design Project, School of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo, and the Landmark Society of the Niagara Frontier with funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Preservation League of New York.
