Alexion Pharmaceuticals Auditorium
100 College Street
New Haven, CT
FREE EVENT, Open to the Public
New England is filled with old factory buildings and other remnants of our industrial history. This built environment is one of our distinguishing characteristics, but it also provides challenges as our cities grow and adapt. How do we best reuse spaces that contain cultural importance? How do we balance this adaptive conservation with the need for new civic spaces? Join Connecticut Public Radio’s John Dankosky for a live event featuring NEXT in collaboration with The Cities Project as we travel around our region and learn about how communities are honoring their industrial heritage while looking to the future.
