by Kelsey Keith Yesterday the Johns Hopkins Hospital officially opened its new building, the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center, bringing an empathetic and curatorial eye to civic architecture by inviting 70 artists to create more than 500 on-site installations throughout the structure. One of the most visible highlights is a 250,000 square foot glass curtain wall on the facade designed by artist Spencer Finch, in which each aluminum panel is sandwiched between two layers of glass colored in a "carefully distilled palette" of 26 shades, one for each letter of the alphabet.
