John Simpson to Design New School of Architecture at Notre Dame

12 May, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


The University of Notre Dame has commissioned London architect John Simpson to design its new School of Architecture building. With an emphasis on classical and urbanism curricula, the school deemed Simpson — a leading practitioner of New Classicism and New Urbanism — a natural fit.

“The design principles embodied in John Simpson’s built work reflect the principles and highest aspirations of our school, which embraces the timeless classical values of durability, functionality, and beauty,” dean of architecture Michael Lykoudis said in a statement. “Our students and faculty will have a building that will be inspirational and instrumental in the teaching of architecture.”

Construction on the 80,000-square-foot building, known as the Matt and Joyce Walsh Family Hall, is expected to begin next year.
