Designed in 2017 for architects and future architects, the Walsh Family Hall of Architecture symbolizes the mission of the Notre Dame School of Architecture to educate architects and urbanists who design and build for today’s and for the benefit of future generations. The approximately 100,000 sq. ft. building enables the college, founded in 1898, to conduct its curriculum in classically inspired rooms equipped with contemporary technologies, and adds the capacity for two new graduate programs in historic preservation and real estate development. Construction costs were approximately $30 million.
Frost Engineering & Consulting assisted project contractors in engineering a unique scaffold base needed to construct the framing of one of the Hall’s auditorium rooms. In addition, the Frost team designed rooftop connections for statues placed atop the main front entrance.
