October Meeting: Arts and Industry in 19th Century Baltimore

Structural Engineering to Renew and Sustain The Peabody Library and Hoen Lithograph Complex

19th century industry fueled economic growth in cities such as Baltimore, the results of which are readily seen in the use of industry and industrialized materials in building construction. With industry came the parallel growth of the engineering professions. The Peabody Library is a magnificent artistic achievement, as it has served the arts and cultural community of Baltimore since its construction in 1878, a success reliant on the progressive use of engineered, industrial materials. The Hoen Lithograph Complex is a powerful symbol of that industry, and now, through renovation, seeks to provide a new energy to the redevelopment of community in the city.

October's meeting is also Student Night! Students should bring resumes for our career fair!
