ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 TOUR

Join the Cornell Club of Buffalo on Saturday April 21st as we tour ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 with founder and noted architect/artist Dennis Maher ’99. Maher will take us through the journey of his organization: from idea inception and stabilizing the structure to current work with SACRA, the Society for the Advancement of Constructed Related Arts, which uses design arts to address critical needs related to neighborhood stabilization, preservation, and workforce training in Western New York.

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 is an experimental art/architecture space, specializing in the design and display of imaginative environments, furnishings, and aesthetic objects, while hosting public exhibitions, educational programs, and events that enhance the sense of wonder within everyday surroundings.

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 serves the Buffalo, NY community as an art/design/education incubator. The organization provides opportunities for students and apprentices to participate in projects that enhance their understanding of the built environment while teaching skills in the building arts.  It hosts public exhibitions that support the theme of the “urban imagination” and we catalyze projects in collaboration with building industry tradespeople.

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 is located at 150 Edward Avenue, Buffalo NY 14201.

The Club will be meeting Dennis on the site at 10:30AM. Please dress weather appropriate as the church is not heated. Afterwards join us for a dutch-treat lunch at Betty’s, just down the street!

Registration is limited to 20 attendees, reserve your spot now!
