Halls design to reflect town nature, history
October 6, 2003 | The Buffalo News
Architect John A. Lydon said he tried to be aware of the town’s character when designing the building, attempting to blend the feeling of a civic building with the rural feel of the landscape. ’’We tried to respect the natural surroundings,’’ said Lydon, who designed the project for DiDonato Associates of Buffalo
‘’ We tried to bring in some wood timbers and make it more rural, as opposed to a lot of steel. It’s a low building, hugging the ground.’’
Lydon said the town’s history as a site for Native American settlements led him to include Indian motifs, including an Iroquois –based mosaic.
“Forests were the first temples of God and in forests men grasped their first idea of architecture”
