Cultures change, so our buildings evolve. Some buildings that we loved are torn down for the next use. And history is lost forever.

What has been lost in New Haven? This illustrated talk will wend through the epochal shifts in our place, the buildings that defined our landscape and that have been swept away by changes. In these tidal swells and ebbs are individual tragedies of loss that may have simply been forgotten or softened by the passage of time.

This talk will focus on the architecture that has been lost by the unthinking energy of social change that propels America and New Haven forward. The particular lessons of each building can reveal what we have been, where we are, and, perhaps, where we are going.
