We’re very excited to announce the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Building 201 project has received a Merit Award recognition in the 2021 Structural Engineers Association of Illinois (SEAOI) program.

SEAOI’s Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards competition takes place each year to recognize creative achievement in structural engineering via innovative structural designs and individual contributions that advance the profession.

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Building 201 is an interdisciplinary research facility that will provide flexible laboratory and office space in a highly collaborative, open workplace environment. APL’s charge to make critical contributions to the nation’s most critical challenges is brought to life in the design of this state-of-the-art facility.

Its innovative structural design helps tell the story of the ground-breaking research that will happen within. With themes like transparency and objectivity which drive the scientific process, the exposed structural steel and concrete reinforce these themes throughout the interior and exterior.
