Behnisch Architekten of Stuttgart, Germany in partnership with Baltimore-based Ayres/Saint/Gross has won an international competition to design the new John and France Angelos Law School at the University of Baltimore in Maryland. The new $107 million facility is slated to open in August 2012.

Of the winning design University of Baltimore President Robert L. Bogomolny said, “Stefan Behnisch has articulated an intital concept for our new law center that is truly forward-thinking. Stefan's ideas about sustainable design and his creativity in responding to the evolving needs of higher education place him in the forefront of 21st-century architecture."

Behnisch’s selection followed an all-day review of the five firms selected as finalists for the design competition earlier this fall. The other firms that participated included Foster + Partners of London in association with Cho Benn Holback + Associates, Inc. of Baltimore; Dominique Perrault Architecture of Paris in association with Ziger/Snead Architects of Baltimore; Moshe Safdie and Associates, Inc. of Somerset, Mass., in association with Hord/Coplan/Macht of Baltimore; and SmithGroup Companies, Inc. of Washington, D.C.
