A team of eight undergraduate students in the University of Notre Dame’sSchool of Architecture will formally present design proposals Friday (April 22) for a unique new housing project on South Bend’s south side.

The students, directed by Kim Rollings, assistant professor of architecture at Notre Dame, will present plans for a 30,000-square-foot facility to provide safe and affordable housing for chronically homeless people.
