Forum to focus on architecture of Baltimore


September 26, 2006

The author of a new book about Baltimore architecture will speak at noon tomorrow at a forum.

Charles Belfoure will discuss Niernsee and Neilson: Architects of Baltimore, at the Johns Hopkins Downtown Center at Charles and Fayette streets.

John Rudolph Niernsee and J. Crawford Neilson designed 19th-century buildings, including Camden Station and the Green Mount Cemetery chapel. They also planned the original Johns Hopkins Hospital campus.

The discussion, part of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation's fall forum, is free.

Oct. 4: Tom Balsley, a landscape designer, presenting the city's plan for the new West Shore Park.

Oct. 11: Fred Shoken of Baltimore's Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation, discussing the city's bicycle master plan.

Oct. 18: Tyler Gearhart, Preservation Maryland's executive director, discussing historic preservation as a development issue.
