Good Design = Good Health: AIA Baltimore Health & Wellness Annual Showcase

This event has been moved to September 1, 2021 and is now tentatively planned as an in-person event. More information to follow…

Join the AIA Baltimore Health & Wellness Committee in the 6th Annual Design Showcase- Good Design=Good Health.

Date: September 1, 2021
Time: 5:00-6:00 PM

Project Submission Deadline: August 19

The AIA Baltimore Health & Wellness Committee will be hosting its 6th Annual Design Showcase- Good Design=Good Health on Wednesday, March 24th, 2020 from 5-6PM. This exhibition is intended to be a fun way for architects, engineers, urban planners, interior designers, contractors, and others to show the local community how they have been creating healthy spaces. The goal of this exhibition is to showcase designs that promote health and wellness in a variety of ways.

The theme of the showcase, Good Design=Good Health, paints a broad stroke of healthy design. Cities and communities that foster healthy living, mental well-being and social connectedness don’t just happen. It takes forward thinking and innovative designers to create spaces that elevate a community’s way of life. For our showcase, we are encouraging architects, engineers, general contractors, landscape architects, urban planners, and artists to submit projects and designs that broadly speak to community health. From the urban planner who designed new bike lane routes throughout the city, to the landscape architect’s healing garden for children, to the contractors bringing the adaptive reuse vision to life, to the architect’s design of community schools bringing to life one’s vision of academics and healthcare access coming together under one roof- everyone brings their own idea of a healthy environment and how to create it.

What you can look forward to: The AIA Baltimore Health & Wellness Committee is interested in bringing members of the design community together with a BRAND-NEW forum to showcase their designs with peers, while also being afforded the opportunity to observe the creative work of others. On this night we will come together to celebrate our successes, share best practices, strategize solutions, and discuss adaptation. To ensure our committee and community members maintain their health, this year’s event will be held virtually. Break out groups will be created, with 5 submissions in each, coupled based on a common underlying theme. This will allow for more intimate conversation and a deeper dive into each project.
