Architectural Expedition

One of our former writers, Lorne Opler, happened to be scouring the web when he came across an article in Atlantic Cities that redirected him to Architizer.com. Lorne pointed out that the article rated the top ten beautiful buildings of modern architecture, and that one of the buildings, located in Germany, looked similar to one of our newest buildings in the Medical Campus. The office building was designed to house Microsoft’s North-Rhine Westphalian office. The building on the right is a rendering of the Global Vascular Institute on the BNMC campus.

Upon seeing additional images of the Microsoft project, and witnessing the end result of the Global Vascular Institute, I am won over by the Medical Campus building mainly due to the types of windows that appear to blend in to the white walls. I’m sure that there are a few other buildings out there that have similar appearances, and although the German building was built four years ago, Buffalo can be proud to have such a structure to showcase in this day and age. I love taking people past the building who have never seen it in person… their reactions are priceless. Just be careful when you try to take a picture – I was stopped a while back by a security guard who told me that I couldn’t take a photo of the building. Rather than getting in an argument I walked away and he watched me until I made it around the block.
*Do yourself a favor and continue hitting the ‘next’ button when you get to Architizer.com. There are some unbelievable projects, and you’ll even come across a few from Toshiko Mori who designed the visitor center at The Martin House.
