Spring Garden Party: The English Garden City Movement and its Influence in Baltimore

Register here to join AIA Baltimore’s Historic Resources Committee for a spring garden party!


The Historic Resources Committee will be hosting Charlie Duff for a discussion of the English Garden Cities movement and how it influenced development in Baltimore.  This event will be held as a Garden Party in a prime example of this trend: Edgevale Park, a hidden gem in Roland Park that was developed in 1913 based on the cottages of the English village architecture.

Charlie Duff is a planner, teacher, developer, and historian. Since 1987, Mr. Duff has been President of Jubilee Baltimore, a non-profit group that has planned some of Baltimore’s most successful neighborhoods and built or rebuilt more than 300 buildings. A graduate of Gilman, Amherst, and Harvard, he has been President of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and has participated in numerous civic initiatives. His book The North Atlantic Cities was published in the UK in 2019 and is now available in the US.

This garden party will take place outside in Edgevale Park, weather permitting. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
