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.

Admission for Lecture and Reception: $20
