We are sad to announce that one of our Chapter Coordinators will be moving to Austin, TX. While we are sad to see him go, we hope that he finds many great new opportunities in Austin!
In the meantime, we will be needing another Chapter Coordinator for the Baltimore Chapter. Please contact us if you are interested in the position!
It has been a while since we last posted, but many things have been happening in the chapter!
Since last Fall, both of our chapter coordinators have gotten married; one in November and the other in April. While things have been slow during this time, we are happy to announce that we have some great new projects that we are working on:
3C Competition: Comprehensive Coastal Communities
Awning Design for Vehicles for Change
Courtyard Design for the International Rescue Committee
We have our second annual pin up and potluck coming up this Wednesday, Dec. 19 at HCM's offices downtown starting at 6:00pm. We will share tasty food and present things we have worked on in the past year...and talk about what is to come! If you would like to join us, please let us know!

On October 25, the AIA Baltimore Disaster Assistance Committee and Baltimore Chapter of Architecture for Humanity helped sponsor an evening workshop with MEMA, the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, just days before Hurricane Sandy struck the region. While neighboring states were hit harder than we were here in Baltimore, our Maryland coastline suffered much damage in the wake of the storm. At times like this we as architects wonder what we can do to help in a time of need.
In lieu of our traditional monthly happy hour, we will be having our monthly AfH meeting at the MEMA Workshop on "An Architect's Role in Disaster Response" on Thursday, October 25. For more information on the workshop, please see the AIA Baltimore website: http://www.aiabalt.com/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=112
On Thursday, October 25, the AIA Disaster Assistance Committee, in partnership with the Baltimore Chapter of Architecture for Humanity, is hosting an evening workshop with MEMA, the Maryland Emergency Management Agency. This workshop will inform participants about how an architect can help with disaster assistance on a state level. It will be held at the MEMA Headquarters in Reisterstown and include a tour of the facility. The workshop will start at 6pm and end around 8pm. For directions, please visit the MEMA website: http://mema.maryland.gov/Pages/directions.aspx
On October 18, twelve states and the District of Columbia will be the sites of a coordinated earthquake preparedness drill and AIA National, along with Architecture for Humanity, are encouraging architects to get involved.
By visiting www.shakeout.org anyone can commit to participating in their own small way by conducting an earthquake drill in their office, creating or revising emergency plans, or simply taking a moment to recognize the seismic hazards in your immediate area.
