AIA Baltimore and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF) are monitoring quickly changing developments about the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are committed to the health of our members, staff, and event attendees, and are taking proactive measures.
March 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm | FREE. Gerda Roeleveld presents the curious case of how the land reclamation project “Markerwaard” in the Netherlands went unbuilt. The first ideas to impolder the area date back almost 350 years and the changes in urgencies and goals over the past 100 years are well documented and informative.
March 4 – April 22. The 2020 AIA Baltimore & BAF Spring Lecture Series will explore unbuilt architecture and design work. Speakers will showcase and discuss their unbuilt, speculative, and/or dismantled work, including competitions, explorations, and research. The series will explore why projects go unrealized and create a dialogue about what could have been, what is, and what can be.
Each month in our newsletter, we include a photo of a building somewhere in Baltimore and ask our readers to quickly identify it. The first person to get it right gets recognized in the next newsletter and the satisfaction of winning. The competition is stiff and the replies are swift. Out of the dozens of responses we get each month, a few dedicated readers have set themselves apart with their deep knowledge of Baltimore’s buildings and lightning fast response rate.
February 18 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm. The AIA Baltimore Historic Resources Committee (HRC) and Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF) will celebrate the AIA and BAF relocation to the new Baltimore Center for Architecture and Design in the Mies van der Rohe designed One Charles Center building with a series of tours of historic Mid-Century Modern buildings in Baltimore.
For the first time the BAF presented the Jim Dilts Publication Award to a local author and historian who is working toward publishing a new work, which expands upon the existing canon of knowledge of Baltimore’s built environment.
