ESSEX — As our buildings increasingly respond to limited resources, it is important to remind ourselves of the relationship architecture has to us. Between the land and our buildings lives the spirit.

Nick Deaver, AIA will give a talk in a Zoom presentation hosted by the Essex Library Friday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. as he explores the personal journey of architecture and how awakening the senses can reconnect us with the natural world.

This talk reflects on discovery and placemaking from Connecticut to Venice to Texas.

Deaver’s work includes private residences, office buildings, theaters, arts and academic buildings, university housing, research laboratories, medical facilities, and recreational buildings.

His award-winning work celebrates modesty, beauty and meaning; focusing on creating memorable places that respond to the local context with a commitment to minimal demands on the environment.

This Zoom presentation is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information or to register please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or see
