A charette is a gathering of all stakeholders in a project where diverse thoughts, hopes, and ideas are used to generate solutions. These community gatherings were led by the Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Trinity’s 18th Rector, and Trinity’s architecture firm, Pelli Clarke Pelli, who used your ideas to create a mission-focused design for the new building at 76 Trinity Place. Parishioners, staff, Trinity partners, and members of the Lower Manhattan community were all invited to take part in this process.
The final charette on October 22, 2016 made public a vision for the future in Trinity’s Lower Manhattan neighborhood. Watch a video summary below and read about the event here. For full and summarized videos of all of the charettes, please see the links below.
