Richardson Olmsted Campus Honored with Driehaus Preservation Award by National Trust for Historic Preservation

We are honored to announce that the Richardson Olmsted Campus has been awarded the 2018 Richard H. Driehaus Foundation National Preservation Award—the most prestigious award given by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Together with Deborah Berke Partners, Flynn Battaglia Architects, and Andropogon Associates, Goody Clancy worked on the adaptive reuse of the former Buffalo State Hospital, a National Historic Landmark designed by H.H. Richardson, with landscape designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. Goody Clancy served as Preservation Architect for the exterior envelope restoration of the Towers Administration Building and two adjoining buildings, which together now house a hotel, conference center, and the Buffalo Architecture Center. Jean Carroon and Jill Verhosek led the preservation effort.

The Driehaus Award was also awarded this year to two other adaptive reuse projects: Crosstown Concourse (Memphis, TN) and the Page Woodson School (Oklahoma City, OK). The three awards will be presented at the National Trust’s conference in San Francisco on November 14.
