Wanta to Open New Lecture Series Season

September 23rd, 2016

The ninth season of the Centerbrook Architects Lecture Series presented by the Essex Library Association will commence on Sept. 23 with guest speaker Stephen Wanta, AIA.

Wanta is an amusing speaker with a diverse pedigree in architecture. The New York-based designer’s portfolio arrays from commercial showrooms, to yachts, to more than 100 residential projects.

Wanta’s fundamental approach to a project is to address the client’s style as opposed to implementing the style of the architect or the market. By engaging clients in every aspect with this process, he believes projects ultimately not only reflect their needs and means, but their style as well.

The event is one of many programs provided by the Essex Library. It will be held in “The Cube” at Centerbrook Architects & Planners’ office, located at 67 Main Street in Centerbrook. The program, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560.

Following Wanta’s visit to Centerbrook, the next lecture will be held on Oct. 14 and is set to feature a return visit from popular past Lecture Series speaker Chuck Benson.
