About Our Building

The strikingly modern concrete and wooden structure at 50 Bloomfield Avenue that has housed the Unitarian Society of Hartford since 1964 is the fourth meeting house built and occupied by the church in its more than 150 years. Variously described as a “spider’s web” or a “space ship,” the building’s twelve reinforced-concrete piers “grow out of the ground and leap up to become cantilever supports for the sanctuary roof,” according to its architect, Victor Lundy.
