One of My Favorites: The Market Arcade

The Market Arcade is easily one of the coolest buildings in Buffalo and home to Preservation Buffalo Niagara!

Check it out next time you’re downtown. The inside is like a mall style building with art galleries, visitor information and more.

It was built with a light well for a roof is a wonderful example of passive lighting, something we see in historic buildings which is a feature we rarely use, design or install.
