SOUTH BEND - The University of Notre Dame has received a $27 million gift from a Chicago area couple that will help fund a new School of Architecture building and expansion of that school’s academic programs.
The gift is from Matthew and Joyce Walsh, of Burr Ridge, Ill., and the new building will be named in their honor.
The 60,000-square-foot Walsh Family Hall of Architecture is expected to be built on the south edge of campus, east of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center and south of Legends restaurant. The land currently is a visitors parking lot. A timeline for construction hasn’t yet been set.
