Professor Brian Carter will present an informal talk on this historic building; the building’s architect, Gordon Bunshaft, of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; and mid-century architecture in Buffalo. Carter has written a forthcoming book on the building that is part of the UB School of Architecture’s series Buffalo Architecture Mid-Century Modern.
