Green Roof Program

Join the Connecticut Chapter of ASLA as they present a full-day continuing education program on the planning, design and realization of unique amenity spaces above the street level!  The day also includes walking tours of nearby Constitution Plaza, Traveler’s Plaza, and Phoenix Plaza, part of the growing i-Quilt network providing connectivity to the exceptional assets of downtown Hartford — including parks, museums, public art and performance spaces, historic landmarks, modern architecture, and the Connecticut River. With a dozen exhibitors and six hours of training, this event will demonstrate how these exciting green pedestrian spaces are helping to rejuvenate our cities.
