Lecture Series 2014

2014 Spring Lecture Series


MICA Lectures   |    D Center Conversations FREE

The AIA Baltimore Lecture Series committee is pleased to announce that the 2014 Lecture Series will examine the resilient city. The resilient city is a material and social construct being built both from the top-down and the bottom-up. It is flexible, incorporating feedback loops with rapid responses to dynamic conditions. It is smart, harnessing insights from ever-expanding reserves of quantitative and qualitative data. It is inclusive, transcending social and cultural boundaries through new models of engagement. This lecture series is exploring the resilient city--a city that truly allows people to thrive amidst uncertainty. Read the Lecture Series Monthly Blog Post
