STV Architect Featured in New Virtual Exhibition Spotlighting Diverse Designers

Aug 5, 2021

Madhuri Subramaniam, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB, a project manager and architect in our Baltimore office, is currently featured in SAY IT LOUD Maryland, a virtual exhibition spotlighting diverse designers who have contributed to Maryland’s built environment.

Subramaniam, who grew up in India, is one of 45 individuals represented in the exhibition, which is  sponsored by the Baltimore Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Baltimore), the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, and the Baltimore Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects.

Subramaniam, holds a Bachelor’s in Architecture from Rizvi College of Architecture, Mumbai University, India. She serves on the board of directors of AIA Baltimore and is a mentor for the SAME Mentorship Summer Program.  At STV, she is one of the founding members of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council.

“It is truly an honor and a blessing to be a part of this event,” Subramaniam said.

As part of her application, Subramaniam mentioned that the day she received the results of her NCARB exam was a major milestone for her career.

“In 2014, after the birth of my twins, I made a promise to myself to become a licensed architect because I had a passion for the profession,” she said. “I struggled as a new mother and a full-time working woman, but after more than a decade of hard work since my arrival in the U.S., I could finally introduce myself as an architect.”

Subramaniam’s work as a project architect for the tenants at the World Trade Center in Baltimore is also featured in the exhibition. STV has been providing on-call architectural and engineering design services for building improvements and upgrades at the World Trade Center, the tallest pentagonal building in the world, as part of a contract with the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Port Administration.

In addition to the digital exhibition, a physical one will launch in October as part of Doors Open Baltimore. It will be the first major exhibition at the new Center for Architecture and Design at One Charles Center in Baltimore.
