ABOUT

Klaus Philipsen

Klaus Philipsen, AIA, is a Baltimore architect and author originally from Stuttgart, Germany. In his book “Baltimore: Reinventing an Industrial Legacy City” (Routledge, 2017), Philipsen connects his work as an architect, transportation planner, preservationist and smart-growth advocate to advance an urban agenda that will propel legacy cities such as Baltimore into the 21st century and the “age of cities.” Philipsen also writes frequently about urban issues in his “Community Architect Daily” blog. In 1992, he founded ArchPlan Inc., Philipsen Architects, a design firm with offices in downtown Baltimore that has received design awards and gained special recognition in rehabilitation, adaptive reuse, revitalization, and transit projects.
