Meredith Hall featured at architectural gala
The Iowa Architectural Foundation hosted a reception last week to mark the completed renovation of the Catholic diocese’s downtown pastoral center. Because the center, like Meredith Hall, was designed by famed architect Mies van der Rohe, an exhibit that featured Drake architecture and Meredith was part of the festivities. Among attendees were SJMC dean Kathleen Richardson and SJMC alum (and architecture fan) Dave Lubbers, JO’86, whose day job is producer for ESPN.
