Speculation about the future of Hartford can be better grounded by comparing the city’s form and place with those of other cities, both now and in the past. The talk will point out some of the often-overlooked forces and factors which made, and still shape, the city and its region. Patrick Pinnell, architect and town planner, has worked with the Hartford Parking Authority, Connecticut Landmarks, and Burr-McManus Trust and draws on that experience to forecast trends in Hartford’s development.
