Join UB School of Architecture & Planning, Broadway Fillmore Alive and Buffalo’s Young Preservationists for a pop-up exhibition of drawings documenting Buffalo’s most curious vernacular: the telescope houses of the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood.
From the front, it’s a simple worker’s cottage—a one-and-a-half -story, gable-fronted, clapboard house. Yet from the side, a charming surprise is revealed—a series of successive additions, each one stepping down in scale from the last—big to small.
This fall, thirteen graduate students from the University at Buffalo studied the telescope houses of Broadway-Fillmore through drawing. Their work celebrates the houses and their peculiarities as a means to reveal stories of human life, occupation, and adaptation through time, and to promote greater discussion around the history, people, and architecture of Buffalo’s East Side.
Where: Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle, 612 Fillmore Avenue
When: December 14, 2018: 6;00-9:00 p.m.
