Each year, the AIA Baltimore presents its annual Design Awards, rewarding the best work of Maryland architects or projects completed in the state. The residential awards can be reconstructions, renovations or new constructions. This year, judges gave out two awards for residential design, both to Matthew Compton of Foundry Architects. Compton has worked full time in architecture since 2002, was licensed in 2007 and co-founded Foundry in 2011.

Architects and the AIAEditor: I enjoyed reading the article "The Art of Working With an Architect" by Beth Smith in your Feb. 4 issue of the Sun Magazine. However, I wish to offer a correction or clarification to a common misconception that the article may seem to support.It was stated in the article that "the initials AIA after the name of an architect signify, among other things, that he or she has been licensed by the state to practice architecture."Please know that being licensed by the state to practice architecture does not necessarily mean you are a member of the American Institute of Architects.

Locating an architect with a reputation for good residential design takes more than a finger tour of the Yellow Pages. Baltimore has hundreds of architects who are good at all kinds of buildings, but the field narrows considerably when you are trying to find someone to create your dream house.Since most architects don't advertise, the best method for finding the right professional for your project is to ask neighbors and friends for names of architects who've worked successfully for them.

: REVIEW Architect Thomas Kerns has designed or renovated nearly 100 religious buildings over the past quarter-century -- and has generally seen the projects get more and more complex. But a recent commission gave Kerns and his colleagues the opportunity to pare religious space-making to its barest essentials. There was no complicated spatial diagram. No large building committee to appease. No requests for elaborate ornamentation. (No big budget, either.) Just an earnest client looking for a free-standing chapel and related support spaces.

The Marsh & McLennan Building at 300 W. Pratt St., one of the few buildings left in downtown Baltimore with a cast-iron front, was the surprise grand award winner in the annual design awards contest sponsored by the Baltimore chapter of the American Institute of Architects.Thirteen other buildings or projects were selected either for awards or honorable mentions, but the Marsh & McLennan Building was called "a unique project" that represents "the best of both the 19th and 20th centuries" in Baltimore architecture, said Philadelphia architect John Bower, one of the three judges for the awards program.

If anyone doubted that Brenna Dailey had fully recovered from an early-season bout with pneumonia, the Notre Dame Prep senior sure convinced them last night.Dailey, a 6-foot outside hitter, pounded down the last two points to lead the Pirates to a 15-7, 7-15, 8-15, 15-13, 15-9 upset of top-seeded Friends in the Association of Independent Schools A Division Volleyball Tournament at McDonogh.Although she admitted to being a little tired at the end of the two-hour match, Dailey never showed it. She finished with a match-high 13 kills -- none bigger than the two that closed out a final six-point run and gave NDP its first AIS volleyball title.
