SOUTH BEND -

The Matthew and Joyce Walsh Family Hall of Architecture will be dedicated on the Notre Dame University campus this week. The new home of the School of Architecture will be blessed during a ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The 100,000 square foot building includes the architecture library, hall of casts, a tower, large plaza, along with studios and research laboratory space. The building was designed by John Simpson Architects of London, and Stantec served as the architect-of-record. 

“Walsh Family Hall will not only provide a beautiful and functional learning environment for our students, it will also serve as a model, allowing in-depth studies of timeless principles of classicism, “ said Michael Lykoudis, Francis and Kathleen Rooney Dean of Architecture. “The building will be a pedagogical and symbolic icon of the School’s architectural principles allowing students and faculty to point to its massing, character, and details as they teach and learn.”

The new home of the School of Architecture is located east of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center along Holy Cross Drive. More information on the school can be found here

But Hoosiers face a challenge: it is expected that nearly a quarter of the current manufacturing workforce will be of retirement age in the next 10 years and we lack the generational workforce to make up that gap.
