Join us on this Spotlight Tour to discover one of Buffalo’s most innovative interior spaces! Founded in 2015, Assembly House 150 is an experimental art and architecture space that focuses on the design and construction of amazing environments. Located in the former Immaculate Conception Church on Edward Street, Assembly House 150 makes use of the soaring interior as a learning environment, gallery and public forum. Assembly House 150 brings together practitioners and students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds: architects, artists, designers, tradespeople and apprentices, in order to work collaboratively on projects that teach skills in construction while also leading to the production of inspiring spaces for contemplation and celebration. Founded by architect Dennis Maher, Assembly House 150 is an extension of Maher’s artistic practice and work as an educator.
Assembly House 150 is home to the Society for the Advancement of Construction Related Arts (SACRA), a partnership between Assembly House 150 and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s Innovation Lab, a unique 15-week skill-building program that provides training in carpentry and woodworking, as well as job readiness training and job placement services, to under-employed men and women in the City of Buffalo.
This Spotlight Tour will provide an in-depth look at the innovative programs that take place at Assembly House 150. Led by Dennis Maher, this tour will include the various constructions inside of the former Immaculate Conception Church, as well as the historic church itself, along with associated stories about the program’s impact on the community.
