Westport Architect Brown Bag Lunch Series

October 24th, 2017 until December 5th, 2017

12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Westport Historical Society is looking to the future, and has invited some renowned and far-seeing local architects and developers to help us imagine what our town might become a half-century from now.

 

They’ve shared their creative visions in the new WHS exhibit, 06880+50, and several of them will be featured in the Westport Architect Brown Bag Lunch Series in October, November and December. Completing the phrase, “Westport in 50 years…,” each architect or developer brings a thoughtful and unique perspective to the local community and its potential.

 Call for reservations, Suggested donation: $5

 

Here is the line-up through December 5 and what each predicts for Westport in 50 years.  Join us, bring a bag lunch, and listen to your future. Talks every Tuesday through December
