ADVENTURES IN BUFFALOLAND with Tim Tielman | Episode 4

“Past Genius Is No Guaranty of Future Performance” – Tim shows off two treasured icons of Buffalo, Richard Upjohn’s St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral and Louis Sullivan’s Guaranty Building,  and compares them to the Rath County Office Building, which came later and apparently aspires only to ultimate banality instead of taking any inspiration from the wonderful buildings which surround it.

Adventures in Buffaloland is an almost weekly series, with new episodes almost every Friday Experience the thrills and chills of Buffalo architecture and civic design with host Tim Tielman, Buffalo’s leading preservationist and executive director of the Campaign For Greater Buffalo.  Produced by award-winning filmmaker John Paget.

    Great stuff! So glad I found your site. Tielman has changed my mind set when I am in the heart of downtown Buffalo. I find myself talking about the “function” of the architecture are it relates to the surrounding environment and meaningful urban living. Thanks, Tim! I think. ha Seriously, keep up the great work.

    John – When will you be posting more Nelson Starr epidsodes? Was Bourdain really in Buffalo on that snowy Sunday night?

    Brian – thanks for the feedback. And we’ll be posting a new Nelson Starr episode this week – a Valentine’s Day special! Stay tuned…

  3. Nelson Starr Says:

    Brian, Yes, Bourdain was in town. Tried like mad to get him to the Pink (and so many other places) but he still hit a few cool ones. He was here for three days! Episode will air early summer/late spring. Yes, stay tuned!

    I too am finding myself talking about the function of buildings whenever I’m downtown. I especially love the points about making sure that buildings are built with the pedestrian in mind, instead of receding from the sidewalk and putting in parking lots.
    These episodes are informative and enlightening, wish they could be put on public broadcasting like PBS or something of the sort.

  5. Josh Says:

    I am loving the series. It keeps getting better.
    This is the kind of stuff I have always noticed about buildings in my neighborhood, but now, thanks to your series, I have a vocabulary to express it.

  6. Matt Says:

    More Tielman! Please do an episode on residential architecture, before Buffalo goes condo-crazy.

    When people are sharing a good big laugh, they are in the moment of love, and truly
    in one with the higher Divine. Whether I am wearing it, blending it or surrounding myself
    with it in my home, color sets my soul on fire. Think about it, you’re just slowing down the process.

    Blood Elves- Blood Elves have bonus expertise in Enchanting.
    You have to have confidence in a machine and yourself, even when you don’t have an incredible
    amount of input on how things turn out. You can work at a race track or casino or you may even invest in one or outright
    own it.
