AIA Baltimore EPs 150 Years of Architecture + Baltimore Collage Challenge

In the winter of 1871 the Baltimore Chapter of the AIA was officially established. How would you depict the evolving relationship of architecture and the city of Baltimore during this 150-year period?

What aspects of architecture, city planning, or urbanism have been successful in this historical context? Where did architects fall short of ideals of profession vis-a-vis the built environment?

These are just a few thought-provoking questions the AIA Baltimore Emerging Professionals would like, architects, students, and the public to address by way of an interpretive collage that reflects the architecture and history of this wonderful city AIA Baltimore calls home!
