My 20-Year Life with the Boathouse
Sponsored by: New Haven Preservation Trust
The Canal Dock Boathouse on New Haven Harbor will open this summer after a two-decade long, $37 million project in mitigation of the loss of the old Yale boathouse under the Pearl Harbor Bridge. Hear architect Rick Wies, designer of the new facility, tell a story of tension, collaboration, defeat, and eventual success as architects, city officials, contractors, and local campaigners worked to preserve reminders of the past in a modern boathouse that will serve as a distinctive community space.
This lecture is presented in honor of John Herzan on his retirement from the New Haven Preservation Trust.
