If you haven't seen it yet, then now is the time. Frank Lloyd Wright's Blue Sky Mausoleum is a sight to behold. Located on a rise between two ponds in Buffalo's 269 acre Forest Lawn Cemetary, this is truly a sanctuary within the the city. Built just recently, the mausoleum is another notch in Buffalo's architecture portfolio.
In the May issue of Buffalo Rising, we will give you a guided tour of one of Buffalo's newest (and tallest) remodeled digs. The apartments come replete with communal bike storage compartments in the hallways. The only catch? They are being marketed to people making between $10 and $12 an hour!
Hope you made it! The place was jam packed. See ya next series. Tuesday, April 26, 8:00 p.m.
Tuesday, April 26th is the last film in this series. Akira Kurosawa's classic, Ran, starts @ 7:00. Be sure to show up on time and to stick around for a discussion after the movie.
Stopped into Ming Cafe this evening for a bite to eat and ran into a couple of really cool local artists. One is about to have one of her works (pictured above) don the cover of Mercury Rev's newest cd (scheduled to be released May 17th). The other is a miniaturist that paints his originals on the covers of matchbooks. Both artists will be featured in the August issue of Buffalo Rising Magazine. And both agreed that Ming Cafe has the best Chinese food in the city.
Here are the matchbooks. Most of this artist's works are under an inch in size! And he's about to be published... and I don't mean just in Buffalo Rising Magazine. More to come on this later.
UB's School of Architecture and Planning has been awarded the National Council of Architecture Registration Boards (NCARB ) 2005 Grand Prize for the Department of Architecture's Small Built Works Project. Brad Wales, AIA, began the project in the spring of 2001. Pictured above is a bus shelter located on Pennsylvania near the old Coda Restaurant.
