Richard M. Economakis
Professor of Architecture
Director of Graduate Studies in Architecture and Urbanism
"Until I was recruited to join the School of Architecture and visited for the first time, Notre Dame seemed like some mythical place where learning, sport, and personal flourishing were said to intertwine like the fronds of an Irish cross. Upon joining the faculty, the myth became a dazzling reality for me.
“I have taught architectural design and theory at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The most rewarding aspect of my engagement at Notre Dame has been the interaction with so many bright and forward-thinking colleagues, and students determined to be a force for good as they enter the profession, striving to fill our towns and cities with beautiful, inventive, and dignified buildings and places.”
