The Richardson Olmsted Campus Wins the Richard H. Driehaus National Preservation Award

October 22, 2018

We’re honored that the Richardson Olmsted Campus has received the Richard H. Driehaus National Preservation Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the most prestigious prize in the field. The project transformed the central portion of the abandoned former Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane, an architectural masterpiece by H. H. Richardson, into the Hotel Henry. Jury chair Paul Goldberger called the winners of the Driehaus program “superlative examples of preservation in action,” in the Buffalo News. Read more about the program and the other winning projects in Preservation Magazine. We were thrilled to be a part of bringing new life to this monumental structure!
