    Baltimore AIA – Edge Harbor and City

    Designers from the Baltimore office recently completed an entry into the AIA Baltimore Edge Competition. The cities chapter put on the competition in concert with the spring lecture series that brought in academics, local experts, and nationally recognized designers to discuss Edges, and the inner harbor of Baltimore. The Edge: Harbor and the City had the prompt of asking if a built structure could be placed on the harbor’s edge to link the land and the sea, the city and the harbor. CannonDesign Baltimore, took the prompt further and explored along a long-buried historic waterway into the harbor: the Jones Falls. The competition limited the group to four images and...

    Last month CannonDesign’s Baltimore office opened its doors to students from the Baltimore Design School (BDS) for a new program aimed at providing a glimpse in a day of a designer. Where prior programs have focused mainly on visiting and teaching in already familiar school environments, the first-ever Designer for A Day brought students into a working design office to engage them in activities focused in the day-to-day work of CannonDesign. The day began with a welcome and introduction to CannonDesign Baltimore, led by Mike Glaros, the Baltimore Office Practice Leader.

  • Earth Day 2019: What Will We Do In the Next 11 Years?

    Earth Day 2019: What Will We Do In the Next 11 Years?

    It has been 49 years since our first Earth Day in 1970. Forty-nine years is quite a run. The passion and awareness ignited during those inaugural events in 1970 have driven significant positive change in our relationship with the natural environment. Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and many will undoubtedly hoist up that number proudly. This year, however, let’s focus on a different number: 11. According to a report released in 2018 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we must halve our emissions by 2030 to avoid a future defined by catastrophic climate change. That deadline is just 11 years away. CannonDesign knows...

    Our office is partnering with the Baltimore Design School for Designer for a Day. This is a program that will give students the opportunity to visit our office and see how their work in school relates to the profession. The Baltimore Design School is a public city school that has a focus on architecture, graphic design and fashion design. As a public school, BDS follows the state curriculum but strives to integrate design thinking into every aspect of education. I had the opportunity to tour the school yesterday and learn about how it has evolved since opening its doors seven years ago. It was an insightful experience for multiple reasons: I...
