Some Buffalove from The Atlantic

Today, my friend Kaid Benfield, one of the best known green bloggers in the country used his blog in The Atlantic to talk about Buffalo's amazing architectural legacy, and even gave me a terrific surprising shoutout. It's not every city that has buildings by Sullivan, Wright and Richardson AND Saarinen, Pei, etc etc. The National Trust's Preservation Conference comes to Buffalo in October and Buffalo is making more of this conference than any other city I've ever seen. Bravo to Buffalo and special thanks to Kaid!

Launching a New Firm and Life

Today I have launched my new firm Barbara A. Campagna/Architecture & Planning, PLLC. BAC/A+P is an architectural firm rooted in the belief that historic preservation values equal the best of green building practices. Our firm's work demonstrates that the artistic, scientific and cultural aspects of remaking and greening historic and existing buildings are crucial to a sustainable future. I have combined this blog, "Cities and Memory" with my former work blog, "True Green" to create my new blog "True Green Cities." Please check out my new website. BAC/A+P is located in Buffalo, NY and Winston-Salem, NC with a monthly jaunt to Washington, DC. One of my key projects will be the consulting management of the institutional development of the Buffalo Architecture Center, a new organization housed in the iconic towers of the former Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane, designed by H. H. Richardson (photo above). I hope you'll join me on my new adventure!
