On Friday, October 13, 2017, AIA Baltimore honored their annual Excellence in Design awardees with a ceremony and reception in Baltimore City. The majority of awardees for Maryland-based projects well represented rehabilitation, adaptive reuse, and restoration work – including many projects led by members and sponsors of Preservation Maryland.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION from AIA Baltimore

Films tell stories. If we pay attention, so do buildings. Inspired by the many layered stories of the historic Parkway Theater, the design curates an unparalleled movie-going experience. The new SNF Parkway stands as a physical record of the technical and cultural evolution of film from its earliest days to today. The design approach celebrates the accumulated layers of each movie era with intentional contrast to modern interventions. The result is an authentic, rich, vibrant “rescued ruin” that energizes the film complex and anchors its critical location in the heart of the Station North Arts District. Adjacent new construction replaces a former row house with a welcoming public lounge and two new state-of-the-art screening rooms. The striking pure white cube hovers above a transparent base to declare a vibrant new energy and dynamic future for the ever-evolving Parkway Theater.
