The iQuilt Plan for Downtown Hartford

The nationally acclaimed culture-based urban design plan reimagines downtown Hartford as a walkable cultural district

Envisaged as a loose grid of park-to-river pedestrian routes, the iQuilt master plan aims to weave together Hartford’s key cultural sites and institutions. The major organizing thread is a nearly continuous chain of landscaped parks, plazas, streets, bridges, and footpaths which form a “green seam”. The plan proposes the development of new public spaces and updates to existing ones that would complete the green seam and includes an identity, branding program and wayfinding strategy.
