On this site, you can find information about buildings, architects, builders, and planned landscapes. You can find the work of Baltimore designers inside and outside Baltimore and the work of out-of-town designers in Baltimore.

This site uses Wiki technology. For additional information about this Wiki, click here.

You can get access to information on this site in several ways.

  • You can use the map below to find individual structures and designed places. Click on any pin to be taken to the page for that building.
  • You can get a great deal of information by clicking on one of the DAS Categories on the left side of this page.
  • You can search for other information by clicking on the Search DAS Wiki box at the top of this page and typing in what you know.

Using the Search DAS Wiki box:

  • Example 1: Suppose you know the address of a building and want to know more about it. You should click on the Search DAS Wiki box above and enter the address.
  • Example 2: Suppose you want to know which landscape architects designed Wyman Park. You should type Wyman Park in the Search DAS Wiki box above.

Or, you could use the direct searching capabilities of the system, like the following:
