The Honorable Duncan Keir, Chief Judge for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Maryland, will be the speaker at Wednesday’s  free Architecture Foundation Forum at noon in the Downtown Hopkins Center.   Judge Keir will address the reasons behind the current volume of cases in his court as businesses assess bankruptcy as a strategic alternative.

The lecture format is a presentation followed by audience Q&A. The audience is invited to bring a brown bag lunch.


On Thursday at 6:30 PM, the Foundation will sponsor its annual Lewis Lecture featuring writer Witold Rybcynski at the Baltimore Museum of Art.  Please join us for this terrific, FREE event.

Launched in 1987 by AIA Baltimore, the Baltimore Architecture Foundation is a non-profit, educational, public-oriented outreach organization. The Foundation focuses its attention and energies on helping to promote an understanding of and an appreciation for Baltimore’s built environment – it does this through publishing books on Baltimore’s architecture, walking tours, lectures, public programs, and an architecture-in-the-schools program. The Foundation is also actively engaged in researching the early architectural firms and practitioners of architecture in Baltimore.
