Celebrate The Baltimore Buildings That Inspire You With Building Love!

Let’s Get Creative! As the 6th oldest chapter of the American Institute of Architects, AIA Baltimore celebrates its 150th birthday in 2021. In recognition of this milestone, the AIA Baltimore and BAF Lecture Series Committee announce an invitation to submit a token of your love for Baltimore architecture. The goals of Building Love are to reflect on the built environment and values manifested in a building or space and to create a discourse among design professions and the public about qualities that make a building or space successful. This call for entries is free and open to the public, but limited to one entry per person.

How To Participate: Create one letter, poem, sketch or other creation of your favorite building or place in Baltimore in the format of a 4×6 postcard that will then be digitally collected. The submission should be original work and produced specifically for this. The postcard format below should be printed and cut out, with the submission created in the space it provides. The submission should describe the subject and why it is beloved in a visual or written way.

Deadline For Submissions: June 30, 2021
Follow BAF on Instagram and see all of our submissions by searching the hashtag #AIABALT150BUILDINGLOVE
