A Welcoming Shelter: Entrance Canopy

Finding your way to a hospital’s entrance has never been easier. A large, curving canopy covers all public entrances to The Johns Hopkins Hospital, including the emergency entrance. Designed by architecture firm Perkins + Will, the wide canopy, similar to the broad overhangs used in airport terminals, shelters patients and guests from the weather. Along with two covered pedestrian bridges connecting the parking garage with each main hospital tower, the canopy provides an inviting, protected entry and exit.
