Architect Sara Langmead will present the history of Charles Center, the urban redevelopment of Baltimore’s Central Business District that began in the 1950s and was a catalyst for the development of Inner Harbor. Charles Center proposed a new model for downtown city centers, integrating modern skyscrapers and historic buildings with a network of connected public spaces. The project involved leading architects of the modern movement, such as Mies van der Rohe, who designed One Charles Center, the new home of the Center for Architecture and Design.

Sara Langmead, AIA, PE, LEED AP is an Associate at Quinn Evans and a member of the AIA Baltimore Board of Directors. She is a licensed architect and professional engineer specializing in historic preservation and creative renovation.
