Oriole Park wins architectural award JHC B

November 03, 1991

Oriole Park at Camden Yards has won the first of what is likely to be a stadium full of architectural design awards.

The urban design plan for the stadium was selected to receive the Grand Award in the 1991 design awards program sponsored the Baltimore chapter of the American Institute of Architects. RTKL Associates Inc. of Baltimore was honored as the designer.

Eleven other buildings or projects were considered for awards, but the judges felt the stadium plan deserved "the highest level of recognition," said architect Charles Dagit.

In addition to the design projects, the chapter presented Distinguished Service Awards to USF&G Corp., for striving for excellence in its architecture; Ann Adams, a medical planner with RTKL and AIA board member; and the City of Baltimore, for its 20-year strategy for guiding downtown development. Awards also went to six of the chapter's associate members: Te-Chang Chang, Michael Dowling, Mark Goeller, Janey Gregory, John Shirley and James Suttner.
