“I attended the West Lafayette Avenue tour—it was especially interesting to me because for the last several years I have lived in the Marble Hill neighborhood before last year buying and renovating a house near Lafayette Square. On this tour I was hoping to learn more about the rich history of the neighborhoods and also to connect with neighbors who shared my interest in history and architecture,” says Eric Stephenson, a 2016 DOB attendee.
“I think architecture is so much more than just a pile of concrete and bricks. There’s a big story behind it, and I think for anybody that is interested in those kind of stories they’ll be entertained by something like Open Doors Baltimore for sure,” says Carl Schmidt, a 2016 Doors Open Baltimore attendee. Carl learned about Doors Open Baltimore for the first time last year after searching the AIABaltimore website for opportunities that would allow him to take more architectural photography.
