During this year’s AIA Convention, Ballinger was pleased to host alumni groups from the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and the University of Maryland’s School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation.

Alumni from the two universities were invited to Ballinger’s studio for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and an opportunity to reconnect with classmates. In addition to providing a respite from the convention, the reception included an exhibit illustrating Ballinger’s history of innovation.

Ballinger has had the privilege to design projects on the campuses of both universities, including the Taubman Health Sciences Library at the University of Michigan and Clark Hall at the University of Maryland.
