The AIA Baltimore Health & Wellness Design committee hosted their third annual Good Health = Good Design showcase on February 15 at Hyperspace, an office furniture dealer innovating healthy work spaces, in the heart of Baltimore’s downtown. The showcase was an opportunity for all industry leaders to present work that, in one way or another, speaks to healthy design.
This year’s projects ranged from city parks that host concerts, exercise classes, and community building activities, to the design of a local bicycle shop where locals can rent, purchase, and repair their bicycles as a healthy way to commute and exercise around town. Thanks to a partnership that has developed over the years, attendees also had the opportunity to hear from Morgan State University graduate students preparing a research study and conceptual master plan for the Pigtown Community in Baltimore.
Year after year, th showcase provides a unique opportunity to hear from the designers and construction managers themselves, giving attendees a glimpse into the strategic thought and challenges that play an instrumental role in new and healthy spaces. The Health & Wellness Design committee is extremely grateful for the support of their sponsors: BKM, DPR, Leach Wallace, Lorax, CRGA, and Ammon Heisler Sachs.
The next showcase will be held in February 2019.
