Cass Gilbert and the Future of Downtown Waterbury
|The taxpayers of Waterbury spent $35.9m to restore what many call the most beautiful building in the state, our City Hall. How can civic leaders, business people, and city residents build on this great accomplishment to attract new business, new residents, and new jobs? |
Join us as Allen Plattus, professor of architecture and urbanism at the Yale School of Architecture; Dr. Barbara Christen, co-editor of Cass Gilbert, Life and Work: Architect of the Public Domain; Matt Hofstedt, Associate Curator of the U.S. Supreme Court and Kevin Taylor, Waterbury Development Corporation discuss how we can learn from American cities that have used their historic buildings to reinvent their city centers.
Lunch break: 12:15-1:00pm (lunch is included in the cost of the event)
Tours of City Hall for symposium participants only: 1:00-2:00pm
