The Catholic University of America

Crough Center for
Architectural Studies


The School for Architecture and Planning offers a wide variety of resources within our building, the Edward M. Crough Center for Architectural Studies.

Our award winning facilities are housed in the original university gymnasium and provide a classic example of adaptive re-use at its best. Developed by graduate students under the guidance of Professor John V. Yanik, the building is conceived as a small city with "streets" filled with students and their work, a "piazza" for special exhibits and a "town hall" for lectures and meetings.
