“Breaking Arts” Features Washburn Award for Extown Cottage

“Breaking Arts,” an online column sponsored by The Arts Council of Greater New Haven and the New Haven Independent, has released a feature article covering the Alice Washburn House Award given to David D. Harlan Architects for the design of Extown Cottage.

The New Haven Independent “features daily reports and diverse public discussion about news in New Haven neighborhoods, government, politics, criminal justice, schools, business, arts and culture… and is produced in conjunction with the Online Journalism Project, a not-for-profit effort to promote professional-quality ‘stand-alone’ and ‘hyperlocal’ news sites on the Internet.”
