Designing AVAM: Virtually Tour with the Building Architects
Time & Location
About the Event
Architect Rebecca Swanston, FAIA and designer Alex Castro incorporated the curving Trolley Works building and enlarged it with an addition that echoes its curves and creates a strong sense of motion. Architect Diane Cho, AIA of Cho Benn Holback + Associates (today Quinn Evans) led the 2004 expansion of the museum transforming an old whiskey barrel warehouse into AVAM’s Jim Rouse Visionary Center. Both projects are stellar examples of adaptive use – the creative repurposing of historic buildings. In this program, the architects reflect on the museum's design, recently voted Baltimore's Most Beloved in Baltimore Architecture Foundation's competition. Rebecca Hoffberger, AVAM's founder & director, joins to give her history on collaborating with them.
This program is presented in partnership with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF) and Baltimore Heritage, as part of their Virtual Histories Series. Tickets are donation based and support BAF and Baltimore Heritage.
