SMP Completes Schematic Design for New Center for STEM Education

SMP Architects collaborated with the Academy of Notre Dame to create a new Center for STEM Education in support of the school's institutional mission and curriculum goals.  The design sensitively responds to the traditional architecture of the historic campus while introducing a forward-looking facility that embraces 21st century science education.  This vision strikes a creative balance between a focus on Notre Dame's future, through collaborative science education, and a strong respect for its past, in the contextual massing and materials.  The facility will be the cornerstone project in the realization of a new master plan, anchoring the southern edge of campus to define a new academic quad.
