Louis A. Simpson International Building: A New Home for International Programs

Princeton University’s international initiatives have found a new home, thanks to the opening of the Louis A. Simpson International Building located at 20 Washington Road.

Simpson, a 1960 alumnus of Princeton’s Graduate School, and his wife, Kimberly K. Querrey, gave a gift to fund the new building which houses the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, the Kathryn W. and Shelby Cullom Davis ’30 International Center, the Council for International Teaching and Research, the Office of International Programs, Princeton in Asia, Princeton in Africa and Princeton in Latin America.

Designed by the Toronto-based Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects, a firm renowned for adapting historic buildings for modern uses, the Louis A. Simpson International Building has been recognized for its beautiful design, including the unique floor installation. The design, created by Isometric Studio, a graphic design and identity consultancy in New York City, won the 2017 Society of Typographic Arts 100 award for its work.
