Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park
2007 Décor Design Award
2007 AIA Buffalo and WNY Chapter
Design Citation - New Building
A signature waterfront museum contained within an existing and highly respected military park that salutes all branches of the US Armed Forces at the historic western terminus of the Erie Canal. The massive four-story exterior volume recalls the form, mass and organization of original Coit McCutcheon building while creating space for exhibit areas, offices, conference rooms, classrooms and a gift shop. The first installation of the Canalside development in Buffalo, this building was a pioneer in implementation of the 2004 Waterfront Master Plan.
