FAB Passport to Buffalo! BAF programs are only a start! We imagine Festival of Architecture – Buffalo as more than just programming provided by the Buffalo Architecture Foundation. As stewards of Buffalo’s built environment, and the connections between the public to architecture and design, BAF is providing a way for other groups to celebrate Buffalo’s architecture during this special week. By partnering with museums, tours groups, local businesses, local architectural landmarks, we encourage everyone to discover Buffalo’s architecture, design and culture in their own way. The FAB Passport to Buffalo contains events, programs, specials, discounts, etc. by all of our FABulous partners, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Buffalo Transportation Museum, Explore & More Children’s Museum and many, many more!
