Why The Lagoon District?
BY JACOB TELL
@ VOL 18
ON AUG 17, 2016
Jacob Tell, CEO and co-founder of a Santa Barbara creative agency, Oniracom, speaks about the inspiration behind the Lagoon District.

Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78
BY FRANK PALEN, ESQ., AICP
@ VOL 18
ON SEP 24, 2016
“Think of me as a time traveler. I’m going to take you back to a place called Buffalo in the 1970s.”
In Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78 from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, attorney and urban renewal advocate, Frank Palen, recalls the creation of a historic district for theatre and culture from a once abandoned rust belt urban core. From 1977 to 1979, Palen was Research Associate in the Center for Community Research and Development at the University at Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Environmental Design, serving as Coordinator of the Buffalo Entertainment District Project. The University at Buffalo’s graduate studio investigated the potential of promoting a theater district in what was then an increasingly abandoned section of Downtown, despite various setbacks and a challenging political climate. The result was a very high-profile effort that set an agenda for the redevelopment of Buffalo that continues today.
