Who is involved?
Many people collaborated to make dig a reality. One of the original visionaries was Omar Khan, Associate Professor and Chair of the department of architecture at the University at Buffalo. Khan had seen too many of his talented students lured away to other cities by a creative vibe and culture – he wanted a way to keep those students in Buffalo.
