Maryland ASLA is proud to sponsor this year’s AIA Baltimore and Baltimore Architecture Foundation's (BAF) Spring Lecture Series. This year, explore the theme of Unbuilt. Speakers will showcase and discuss their unbuilt, speculative, and/or dismantled work, including competitions, explorations, and research. The series will explore why projects go unrealized and create a dialogue about what could have been, what is, and what can be.
Lecture 1: Unbuilt Futures
What is a responsible design strategy for the future? This lecture focuses on landscape architects leading a process of “unbuilding.” Whether deconstructing hard shorelines into soft, resilient and ecological edges; establishing strategies for managed retreat; or reconceptualizing rural open spaces as sophisticated, regenerative landscapes; the discipline of landscape architecture is heavily engaged in finding solutions for the intricate and complex questions facing our common future.
Continue the conversation after the lecture at the Brass Tap, located around the corner at 1205 W. Mt. Royal Ave. at the Fitzgerald. Drinks available for purchase. Light appetizers provided by AIA Baltimore.
