  • Walter D. Ramberg

    Walter has been involved with Catholic University’s School of Architecture for over 50 years. In that time he has personally helped to form more than 1,000 students in the art, practice, and implementation of building design. With nearly 31 years of active teaching under his belt, he has left a substantial mark on Catholic University’s School of Architecture and Planning.

    Walter joined the School as a Visiting Design Critic in 1965. One of his many notable moments was delivering a lecture on “Conceptual Relationship of a Building to its Surroundings” in 1969. Through his many years here at the School, Walter has seen the program grow from a small department in the Engineering School, to its own School that teaches over 300 future architects today.  Not only has Walter watched it grow, but he has also contributed much of his time and talent to it as well.

Distinguished Visiting Faculty

The School offers students, faculty, and community the unique chance to meet, discuss, and work in close-proximity with world-renown architects while addressing issues related to the core mission of Catholic University. During their visit, these critics typically give a major public lecture, direct a design studio workshop, interface with students and faculty as well as participate in reviews and juries. In addition to its enduring impact in the life of the school, these programs also brings national and international visibility to the School.
