The City of Light… Again!

Leave it to photographer Joe Cascio to catch the Outer Harbor silos in a magnificent light – one that speaks to the true brilliance of the installation. Joe managed to work his magic, once again, doing justice to the work of Ambiances Design Productions – the company that is working with the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) to pull off a Master Plan that would see the Inner and Outer Harbors transformed into an etherial light show.

Taking a further look at some of the Master Plan visions from Ambiances Design Productions, it is clear that the company could be a real game changer for Buffalo, especially when the magnitude of the project is considered. Not to say that the funding (or other pieces of the puzzle) is in place for all of this, but certainly steps have been taken to identify the potential of the waterfront’s silos, elevators and mills as canvases to create a stunning ribbon of projected performances, as you can see by examining the following schematics. Even The Skyway looks as if it could play a role in the future of The City of Light.
