JHU Broadway Research Building

JHU Broadway Research Building

Research facility bridges tradition and modernity.

Dominating the corner of Broadway and Madison Street, the Johns Hopkins University Broadway Research Building is one of several buildings completed as part of the East Baltimore campus master plan. This facility is a striking departure from the traditional red brick style that characterizes much of the Hopkins medical campus and has been called “a modern manifestation of the Hopkins research imperative.” It features advanced biomedical research laboratories used by Comparative Medicine, Medicine and Basic Sciences faculty along with administrative offices and conference rooms.

PRIME AE was responsible for coordinating all engineering disciplines and full-time construction administration for a complex, integrated network of wet lab research and education functions. A connecting pavilion links the third floor of the building to the existing Ross Research Building to foster even greater collaboration among researchers across the campus.

The JHU Broadway Research building is an innovative facility that still fits within the established, traditional architectural style of much of the campus. PRIME AE helped JHU create a connection between old and new through a unified, dynamic urban space that is a center of world-class scientific and medical research and collaboration.
