A monumental move for us means monumental opportunities, and we need your help to make the exciting opportunities ahead of us a reality.

The Center is for Baltimore

It is a place where local designers can gather and network, where students can engage in STEM workshops, and where all Baltimoreans can participate and learn.

The Center is an anchor

Its location in the heart of downtown at One Charles Center provides a critical link between the soaring Miesian tower above and the lively streetscape just out the front door. Its central location alongside a transit hub and movement corridors draws visitors up from the Inner Harbor and locals down from all parts of the city and surrounding counties.

The Center is our opportunity to grow

And to better serve our mission. Shared exhibition and gallery spaces, studios, classrooms, and event spaces will offer engaging new programming on architecture, urban design, neighborhood history, historic architecture and new design projects, and the role of design in shaping the city’s future.
