Community Conversation

Charette 1

Trinity Church Wall Street invited parishioners, staff, Trinity partners, and members of the Lower Manhattan community to take part in a community conversation about the mission of Trinity and its impact on a new parish building at 68/74 Trinity Place. The results of that process and the design for 74 Trinity Place were unveiled on October 22.

Six Charettes

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 68/74 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 made public a vision for the future in Trinity’s Lower Manhattan neighborhood. Watch a video summary below and read about the event here.
