Connecticut boasts some of the oldest and most distinctive architecture in New England, from Colonial churches and Modernist houses to refurbished nineteenth-century factories. The state’s territory includes landscapes of small farmsteads, country churches, urban streets, tobacco sheds, quiet maritime villages, and town greens, as well as more recent suburbs and corporate headquarters. In his book, “Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places” (Wesleyan University Press, 2018), Christopher Wigren introduces readers to 100 places across the state. On September 16, he will discuss a few of them and talk about how architecture both reveals and shapes who we are.
