Hotel Henry

This year, ISSST will be held at the Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center, located in Buffalo. Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center makes innovative new use of one of Western New York’s most iconic architectural landmarks. Widely considered to be one of Buffalo’s most important and beautiful buildings, construction on the 145-year-old Richardson Olmsted Campus began in 1872 and opened in 1880 as the state-of-the-art Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane. The Richardson Olmsted Campus is recognized as a National Historic Landmark, a nationally significant historic place, designated by the Secretary of the Interior, possessing exceptional value or interpreting the nation’s heritage. In 2017, the building underwent the most extensive renovation in the US for that year, re-opening as the Hotel Henry.  The building also houses the Lipsey Architectural School, and functions as an art gallery. Current collections are on view throughout all the public areas of the property.
