Every Thursday with the exception of a few weeks at the beginning and end of semester, AD hosts a lecture series of invited guest presenters. The range of topics is wide, multidisciplinary sometimes, at others local community organizations, workshops and even out alumni come in to speak to us.
The time is always noon - 1 pm, and - normal times - a free lunch is served for all attending, speaking or dropping by if you are FYE. Lunch is great home made food or failing that pizza. Our lectures continue online on Zoom click here to join the events.

Peter Stubb, AIA, LEED AP, Principal & Design Director, Gensler Baltimore.
As Design Director in Gensler’s Baltimore office, Peter leads an architecture studio that focuses on Commercial Office Buildings, Education, and Planning projects. A multifaceted designer, he has helped build an interdisciplinary studio that partners with clients to deliver thoughtful, award-winning projects. A gifted conceptual thinker, he has the tectonic sensibilities to tap into nuanced considerations of context, program, placemaking, and the human experience. Peter believes that good design is democratic, approaching social-impact projects with inclusive strategies built on listening to a community to understand its needs and drive positive change. It is this belief and dedication that has led him to serve as a regional community impact advisor for the firm.
He earned his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Maryland and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He is currently a member of the Board of Trustees for the Baltimore Design School.
Saif Ul Haque (b. 1958, Dhaka) is the Principal of Dhaka based architectural practice Saif Ul Haque Sthapati(SHS) and Director Research and Design Program at the Bengal Institute for Architecture, Landscapes and Settlements also at Dhaka, Bangladesh. He studied architecture at the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and is involved in practice, research and education. His works include residential, institutional and industrial facilities at different locations in Bangladesh and have been published and exhibited in and outside Bangladesh. Some of the works have also received awards at home and abroad and his recent work Arcadia Education Project is the recipient of Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2019. He has been a visiting faculty and reviewer at various institutions. His research interests include environment, architecture and urbanism and has written on these topics. He has also been involved in organising a number of exhibitions on architecture.
The format of this lecture will be an informal conversation between Timmy Aziz and Architect Saiful Hoque about his projects and practices, followed by questions and answers.
