College Park, MD-- Gary Bowden, Professor of the Practice at the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, is featured today on Baltimore's NPR station (88.1FM) during Maryland Morning with Sheilah Kast. Mr. Bowden's interview is in response to a recent RMJM Hillier ranking of America's Best Cities for Design. Chicago topped the list and the District rounded it out at #10. While Baltimore just missed the top ten, the District's neighboring metropolis was noted as a city to watch. During the interview, Mr. Bowden expounds on why Baltimore is a city to watch and in some ways has already arrived.
