The University at Buffalo (UB) shares exciting updates on its new One World Café in a recently published UBNow article focused on the project. The authentic, internationally themed eatery to be centrally located on UB’s campus between Capen Hall and Founders Plaza engages the broader goals of UB’s Heart of the Campus initiative.
“As One World Café has moved forward, UB’s project managers and CannonDesign team members, working together, have focused on design that meets the project’s unique vision,” Graham Hammill, vice provost for educational affairs and dean of the graduate school, says in the piece.
Hammill then adds: “A first-floor, 500-seat dining area will offer visitors a central hearth and a new connection to the (campus) Spine… (it’s) a different concept from a food court, where visitors usually eat and leave. One World Café will include spaces for students to study and to engage with one another and with faculty in a relaxed, communal environment. The vision has greatly benefitted from the voices of campus stakeholders, including students. This will be much more than a place to eat.”
