2022 AIA|BAF Lecture Series Announces Speaker Line-Up

We’re gearing up for our 2022 Lecture Series: CURRENT[LY]

Recent events have created uncertainty but hope about the future. How do we transform architecture and design to address rapidly changing needs and demands in our homes, workplaces, and public spaces? The 2022 AIA and BAF Lecture Series will explore current trends and changes in local and international work in the design industry as we look to our post-pandemic future.

Registration coming soon!

UPCOMING LECTURES:

March 23: The first lecture in the AIA Baltimore & BAF 2002 Spring Lecture Series will explore landscape and planning in the context of social justice awareness, post-pandemic issues and urban fabric. Marc Miller, Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture at Penn State, will present recent landscape, urbanism, research projects, and academic work and Thor Nelson, Chief of Planning, Design and Construction at DC Housing Authority, discuss how can we leverage the opportunity of transforming public housing into new mixed-income communities to create places and landscapes that support diversity and diverse uses. The DC Housing Authority is exploring how landscapes authored by designers of color and informed by intergroup contact theory can create truly diverse places that appeal to people of different cultural backgrounds, ages, and household makeups.

April 13: The second lecture in the series will probe public space design, branding environments, graphic design, architectural fabrication, and education in light of the pandemic. Multidisciplinary designer Bruce Willen, of Public Mechanics and Post Typography, will discuss participatory design while sharing projects that jaywalk through the intersection of experiential design, placemaking, public art, and cultural branding. Rick Sommerfeld of the Colorado Building Workshop at the University of Denver, will present simple typologies that are often cast aside by architects as vapid structures unworthy of their efforts and relegated to engineers and contractors to design. From 2012- 2020 each of these typologies was undertaken by the University of Colorado Denver’s Colorado Building Workshop as part of their emerging design-build program. The hunch was that even the most mundane projects require our attention and, when appropriately questioned, could be invaluable learning tools for a student’s architectural education.

May 4th:  The lecture will discuss design and community development to create social, economic and environmental impact, in dialogue with interior design and trends evident as we move into the post-pandemic design world. Katherine Darnstadt of Latent Design and Rebecca Jones of RD Jones will present their recent architecture and interior design work across varying scales. REGISTER HERE
