The Program:

The Baltimore Architecture Foundation will host a panel discussion about urban design and how architecture is being made in the 21st century based on the recent international design competition for the new University of Baltimore Law School Building. The winning team of the $107 million project is Germany's Behnisch & Baltimore's Ayers/Saint/Gross. The building will be located at the NE corner of Charles St. & Mt. Royal Ave. with an anticipated completion date of August 2012.

The evening’s panelists include architects: Roger Lewis, FAIA (a competition juror and Professor Emeritus at UMCP), Jeremy Kargon (of Morgan State University), and Craig Purcell (of Brown Craig Turner), with Elizabeth Evitts Dickinson (a writer of architecture & urban planning). The discussion will be moderated by Charlie Duff (Executive Director of Midtown Development Corporation).
