From the perspective of the lead architecture firm, Flynn Battaglia Architects, and the Richardson Center Corporation docents, the tour will take you through the history of the site, the transformation of the Towers Administration Building and two adjoining wings into a boutique hotel, conferencing center, and the new home of the Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center as well as a look at adjacent vacant buildings next to be reimagined and developed. Following the tour, there will be a reception at the hotel.
