Duncan Student Center Wins SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture Award

University of Notre Dame’s Campus Crossroads Project has received the SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture for Building Additions or Adaptive Reuse Honor award, which was announced in July at the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee. This project team consisted of Workshop Architects, The S/L/A/M Collaborative, HOK, Ratio Architects, and others. The Campus Crossroads Project consists of three new additions to Notre Dame’s existing football stadium: Duncan Student Center for student life and recreational facilities, O’Neill Hall for the music department, and Corbett Family Hall for the anthropology and psychology departments, and student media facilities. Workshop lent their expertise in designing the Duncan Student Center portion of this expansive project, which you can read more about here.

Submittals must be made by a team including the institution and the architect(s). Your project must have been completed and occupied within the past five years.
