School of Architecture
Campbell Hall Expansions
The School of Architecture has doubled its enrollment since moving into Campbell Hall more than thirty years ago. Today it houses one of the nation’s leading architecture and landscape architecture departments, as well as distinguished programs in architectural history and urban and environmental planning.
Designed by prominent architects and landscape architects on the faculty, working in coordination with SMBW Architects in Richmond, the additions to Campbell Hall include a new entry tower to the east housing flexible exhibition space, rooms for reviewing student work, and a lower level entry to the auditorium.
Victor Elmaleh (Architecture ’42) and his wife, Sono, provided the lead funding for the east entry tower, which is named in their honor. To the south, a new bank of twenty-six faculty offices is linked to nearby studios and teaching spaces. Interior renovations encompass a renovated lecture hall, upgraded seminar and jury rooms, a technology bridge, and an improved café. The new landscape plan includes an east passage, a bio-retention demonstration garden, an auditorium court, a graduate work terrace, and two outdoor classrooms.
