Overview

A conversation and behind-the-scenes look at the rebranding of the Maryland Film Festival and how Baltimore’s grandest movie theater was turned into a 21st-century landmark. With: Ziger/Snead Architects Post Typography & Southway Builders Moderated by Elizabeth Evitts Dickinson Presented by AIA Baltimore and AIGA Baltimore as part of Design Month 2017 Sponsored by Indigo Ink ————————— Happy hour at 5:30 PM Event starts at 6:30 pm Students: free AIA or AIGA members: $5 General public: $10 Advance tickets: http://www.aiabaltimore.org/events/designing-the-parkway/ The Parkway Theatre’s unique architecture and design approach celebrates the building’s 100 years of opulence, decay, and reinvention. The stunning transformation of this grand theater contrasts modern interventions with a century of history, resulting in a ‘rescued ruin’ where layers of the past coexist with the future. Architects Ziger/Snead and designers Post Typography, along with Southway Builders share stories and the process behind the theater’s provocative design and the challenges of bringing this abandoned movie palace back to life as a year-round home for contemporary cinema. Explore one of Baltimore’s most unique architectural landmarks while enjoying a cocktail, craft beer, and some popcorn.
