Exclusive Columbia alumni-only tour of Richardson Olmsted Complex

  • 22 Oct 2011
  • Buffalo, NY
Fellow alumna and Buffalo native, Barbara Campagna, is organizing a Columbia-affiliate-only tour of the expansive, at-risk Richardson Olmsted Complex, located on the north side of Buffalo.

The 1895 building and its grounds were created as the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane through a partnership between noted architect H.H. Richardson and landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. The complex fell out of use in the 1970s, and currently awaits adaptive re-use. The site is generally not open to the public.

This special tour of the site will take place on the morning of Saturday, October 22. It is available by pre-registration with Columbia only. This is not a National Trust-sponsored event. If you intend to join the group, please rsvp to hp@arch.columbia.edu no later than Friday, October 14. A maximum of 50 people will be permitted onsite. When the group is complete, information about meeting time and place will be shared.
