Johns Hopkins University on Thursday laid out design plans for a new building to honor the legacy of Henrietta Lacks, a Baltimore woman whose cells have been the basis of research for many medical breakthroughs. The around 34,000-square-foot building will be located on the corner of Ashland and Rutland avenues in East Baltimore. It will be used for a mix of community discussions and to house the university’s Berman Institute of Bioethics and the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, Vines Architecture, the design firm, told the city’s Urban Design and Architecture Advisory Panel (UDAAP).
