Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Celebrates Ribbon Cutting Event

Johns Hopkins University celebrated a ribbon-cutting event recently for its Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Building 201 in Laurel, MD. The new building is a breakthrough research and development center that will house some of the nation’s top scientists.

Building 201 is a blend of complex labs and office space that will primarily house APL’s Research and Exploratory Development Department. APL’s mission to make significant contributions to the nation’s most critical challenges is brought to life in the design of this state-of-the-art facility. Designed to foster advanced interdisciplinary research, the spaces are highly collaborative and open and offer a multitude of opportunities to experiment and innovate.

CannonDesign provided the architectural and engineering services on the project. Steve Blair, PE, LEED AP, Director of CannonDesign’s Science + Technology Practice, attended the event. He noted, “The atmosphere was very much a celebration—Building 201 will be a workhorse for the development of new innovations and ideas.”
