AIABaltimore is hosting the B-MORE | RESILIENT Rowhouse Competition in the summer of 2015. This competition focuses on how to provide innovative design solutions to transform Baltimore City’s existing vacant housing stock to be more resilient. The COTE and Resiliency Committees of AIA Baltimore have partnered with representatives from Baltimore City to develop a competition that can help provide real ideas to solve real problems.
Baltimore City needs an innovative, new vision for how the module of the rowhouse can be used to protect and sustain a neighborhood as our environment continues to change around us. While the competition designs will offer a solution that can be repeated across Baltimore, we will look specifically at the Broadway East Neighborhood, at a site adjacent to the Amtrak rail line that bisects the city. This neighborhood is one of many “hot spots” that suffer from the heat island effect, but is particularly interesting because of its visibility from the rail line, its ratio of city owned vacant housing, and its potential to be a vibrant neighborhood.

Competition Registration Deadline: July 1, 2015
Competition Submission Deadline: 1, 2015
