Built to Last

Where Baltimore - - Editor's Itenerary - ANNE KIM-DANNIBALE

Those who ap­pre­ci­ate ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign have a wealth of sub­jects to study in Bal­ti­more. The city’s growth as a mar­itime and man­u­fac­tur­ing pow­er­house brought great pros­per­ity and with it, a who’s who of fa­mous ar­chi­tects. Ben­jamin Henry La­trobe, Stan­ford White and even Lud­wig Mies van der Rohe have left their mark. A drive or walk through town yields a kaleidoscope of Ge­or­gian man­sions, Greek Re­vival gov­ern­ment build­ings and Gilded Age Art Deco clubs, telling the story of this fair city in brick, stone and glass.
