2018 AIABaltimore and BAF Spring Lecture Series

March – April 26
All Lectures: 6:00 PM | Falvey Hall, MICA Brown Center | FREE

Empowerment, Access, Co-Creation, Ethics

At the core of many of our social challenges is an asymmetrical power dynamic. This series explores the role of power in design and what it looks like for designers to facilitate its redistribution. We begin with Dr. Thomas Seager, a professor researching the moral and ethical implications of infrastructure design. Better Block facilitates self-organizing neighborhood improvements by lowering the barrier to entry on fabrication through their open-source Wikiblock platform. Hector Design looks at how social relations and conflicts materialize through the design process. Orkidstudio focuses on the process of construction to affect social change and empower people through the sharing of skills and knowledge on site. Collectively understood, these perspectives offer pathways for us to consider as design continues to take on greater challenges and seek greater impact.

All lectures begin at 6:00 pm followed by a reception.

Sponsorship

In 2015, the AIA Baltimore shifted its annual sponsorship funding allocations from a few specialized events to a more general distribution across all of its committees. As a result, our need for your financial support is greater than in previous years. By sponsoring this important cultural event, your company is distinguishing itself in this competitive marketplace. Each lecture draws an audience of 200-300 design and construction professionals as well as design lovers. As a contributor to the series, your company will be recognized in all of our promotional materials sent to our extensive network of over 1200 AIA members and affiliated organizations throughout the weeks and months preceding the lectures. We encourage you to also attend the events.

If you have given to our series in the past, we thank you for your generosity and hope that you consider our series worthy of continued support this year. If you are new to the AIA Baltimore community and Lecture Series, we ask that you consider becoming a new sponsor for our event.
