Saturday, February 1, 2020. Join the Baltimore Architecture Foundation in our annual celebration of Groundhog Day at a Baltimore architectural landmark. Each year the BAF celebrates the meteorological prophesying of furry marmots at an architectural landmark in Baltimore. Join us at the Food Hub!
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.
Sponsor the 2020 Groundhog Day Party & Fundraiser, the BAF’s biggest party and fundraiser—a one-of-a-kind party thrown at a one-of-a-kind location. Sponsoring the Groundhog Day Party supports BAF and its many programs, from fostering the next generation of architects, to promoting the value of Baltimore’s architectural legacy to the public
This year has been unique and exciting for the Baltimore Architecture Foundation. 2019 marks the 32nd anniversary of the BAF. For over three decades, the BAF has encouraged the public to explore Baltimore architecture—to be mindful of the area’s history, recognize Baltimore’s architectural heritage, and appreciate its design innovations.
On November 23, The Future Architects Resources (FAR)/Kids in Design committee volunteered at the 5th annual Girls STEAM Ahead to teach the cadettes about architecture and design. The program was held at the ballroom of Lord Baltimore Hotel where Girl Scouts learned from women in architecture and various STEM fields.
2019 has been an exciting year as we come ever closer to opening the Baltimore Center for Architecture and Design with AIA Baltimore, scheduled for early 2020. It’s a big leap forward for the BAF as we move to a more visible and inviting downtown space where we can better serve the public and our mission.
