This award-winning new facility is a confidence-inspiring oasis of hope for young people with brain and spinal cord  injuries, as well as those with developmental disabilities. The building program unites previously scattered facilities for research, education and therapeutic care at Kennedy Krieger, an affiliate of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The design team worked closely with patients, families and staff to develop a concept that seamlessly integrates architecture, interiors, environmental graphics, and landscape into a unified healing experience.
