Cass Gilbert and the

Future of Downtown Waterbury

Saturday, April 9 9:00am-2:00pm


The Mattatuck Museum  will bring together city leaders, architectural historians and urban planners to engage in a conversation with business people and area residents on how the newly restored City Hall can be a catalyst for attracting new business, new residents, and new jobs to downtown Waterbury.


Among the presenters are Allen Plattus, Barbara Christen, and Matt Hofstedt who demonstrate how we can learn from other American cities that have used their historic buildings to reinvent their city centers. Barbara Christen is the co-editor of Cass Gilbert, Life and Work: Architect of the Public Domain. Allen Plattus is a professor of architecture and urbanism at the Yale School of Architecture and the founder of Yale Urban Design Workshop and Matt Hofstedt is the Associate Curator of the U.S. Supreme Court, designed by Cass Gilbert. The program will be moderated by Kevin Taylor who is the Senior Project Manager of the Waterbury Development Corporation who was the administrator for the City Hall restoration. Mr. Taylor will engage the audience and the panel in creating a plan for the economic rebuilding and historic preservation and adaptive reuse.


The program will run from 9am-12:30pm followed by lunch provided by the BMuse Café and tours of City Hall for symposium participants  from 1:00-2:00pm.


Registration is required.  

Members: $15

Non-members: $20
