The Mechanic Theater opened in January 1967 as the rough-hewn crown jewel of Baltimore’s downtown revitalization efforts. Johansen studied design at Harvard and spent his early career days in the office of Marcel Breuer. Like much of its Brutalist ilk, the Mechanic’s architecture—known in an academic capacity as “abstract expressionism”—often draws criticism for its angular concrete forms.
