About the Baltimore Architectural Foundation 

The Baltimore Architectural Foundation (BAF) offers many different programs for aspiring architects. The event is funded by the charity, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the organization. Through tours, scholarships, publications, exhibitions, and the annual Doors Open Baltimore event, BAF's mission is to foster the next generation of architects and promote the value of Baltimore’s architectural legacy to the public. For more information about the charity, check them out on Facebook.

The Venue:

1128 Calvert St. (or The Motown Mansion) is an 11,000-square-foot home that offers plenty of space to party comfortably. Originally built in 1891, it still holds a lot of the original architecture. View more photos of the venue on Berkshire Hathway Listing so you can see what to expect!
