Every building has a story. The intriguing architecture of our community is celebrated through Building Stories — BAF’s multi-media project documenting and sharing profound individual experiences with architecture, construction, landscape and planning throughout Western New York.
Buffalo Architecture Foundation invites you to share a personal story of your experience of architecture and place in Western New York. Whether a sentimental reflection on a cherished spot or a philosophical piece on a local landmark, we welcome the unique narratives that you may generously share with us. Express you story any way you choose to: prose, poetry, photography, original artwork, music, recorded spoken word or any other way. It’s your story and we want you to have fun telling it!
Through a partnership with the University of Buffalo Libraries and BAF, Building Stories is accessible as a digital collection at UBdigit, home to collections encompassing a wide variety of formats including photographs, print materials, audio recordings, artworks, artifacts, and other resources.
The Building Stories digital collection supports BAFs mission of inspiring the exploration and appreciation of architecture and how it shapes our lives by reaching out to a wider audience and preserving your stories. Please visit the collection at
