Built between 1906 and 1925, the vast riverside complex of grain silos in Buffalo City (USA) comprises a dozen buildings. Having come to symbolise economic crises and failures for the previous generation, the iconic structures that cement the city and landscape have been targeted by a new generation of artists in search of inspiration. The silos will be turned into apartments, and facilities for the arts community as well: housing, studios, gallery, etc. The silos are a distinctive symbol of Buffalo’s port identity, and the architects will preserve their exterior appearance whilst redeveloping the interiors. The project is part of a wider programme dubbed “Silo City”, one of whose main aims is to make Buffalo a creative city.
