Men surround artworks in an image from “Destruction of Memory,” a 2017 film based on the same-named book by Robert Bevan.

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art will screen “Destruction of Memory,” a film about cultural destruction during times of war, and host the director, Tim Slade, at 4 p.m. on Jan. 17 in the Mack Hall Auditorium.

This event, part of the School of Architecture + Art Lecture Series, is free and open to the public.

BARRE, Vermont — 

WHO: TD Bank leadership, Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art’s Design+Build Collaborative leadership, professors and students along with Downstreet Housing & Community Development (Downstreet) leadership, Washington County Mental Health Services (WCMHS) leadership, and Vermont Housing and Conservation Board (VHCB) leadership.

WHAT: Partners will celebrate the design, construction and siting of LIFT House in Barre, through brief presentations and a chance to see the house’s exterior at its site.

WHERE: Downstreet Housing & Community Development offices, 22 Keith Ave., Barre.

WHEN: 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020

WHY: Funded through TD Charitable Foundation, Norwich’s Design+Build Collaborative partnered with Downstreet and WCMHS to devise a way to reduce the financial cost of new housing while creating safe, healthy, and sustainable homes for vulnerable Vermonters. Students in Norwich’s Design+Build Collaborative, in collaboration with Downstreet, planned and built two new, custom-designed energy-efficient small homes (approximately 300 square feet) that promote both contemporary and authentic architectural values. The houses will soon be on a vacant lot once inhabited by blighted, deteriorating housing in downtown Barre City. This is the first of the two houses to get completed and moved to the site. Housing vouchers will be paired with the dwellings in order to serve individuals who have mental illness and/or are at high risk of homelessness or are currently homeless. With a Washington County Mental Health Services clinic less than a mile away, this initiative is well-positioned to address a real and growing need in our community while reducing preventative instances of homelessness, all with a financial approach that makes sense.tiny
