SLAM Receives SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture Award

The S/L/A/M Collaborative is pleased to announce the University of Notre Dame, Campus Crossroads Project is a 2018 Honor Award Recipient for the SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture for Building Additions, Renovation or Adaptive Reuse category. SLAM is among eight Honor Awards granted this year.

The SCUP Excellence in Architecture award is a juried competition that recognizes projects requiring an expansion or addition to an existing building for the same or related use; or for the addition, renovation or adaptive reuse of buildings that no longer meet their original use or architectural intention. Juror comments on the Campus Crossroads project, as highlighted on the SCUP website, include “the programming is so distinctive…its respectful to the campus…exemplary and trendsetting.”

The Campus Crossroads Project is made up of three adjacent buildings anchored to the south, east and west sides of the stadium—O’Neill Hall, Corbett Family Hall, and Duncan Student Center. The project is an integral and vibrant new face to the southeast side of the campus, while inspiring a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to education and research among students and faculty. These new buildings add more than 800,000-sq.-ft. of classroom, research, student life, fitness, digital media, performance, meeting, event and hospitality space, strengthening the stadium’s connectivity to the surrounding campus and drawing students in year-round.

Please visit the SLAM Campus Crossroads project website at for the full story and pictorial tour of spaces.

SLAM served as Executive Architect of the Campus Crossroads project, working alongside a complex and diverse team of industry partners that includes HOK; Workshop Architects; Champalimaud; Ratio Architects; Structural Design Inc.; Barton Malow; BVH; Ricca Design Studios; MCH; WJHW. SLAM led the programming, planning and design through construction of the $400 million project.

SCUP jurors will recognize the award-winning teams on July 16 at the SCUP 2018 Annual Conference in Nashville, TN.
