Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building & Louis A. Simpson International Building

The former Frick Chemistry Laboratories were fully renovated and repurposed. The Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building houses Princeton’s Economics department and related research centers. The University’s international initiatives are newly sited in the Louis A. Simpson International Building. It brought together academic and administrative areas that were dispersed across the University campus.

The structure’s interior was renovated extensively, while the historic character of the exterior of the building and primary interior spaces were preserved. The building features new classrooms, offices and meeting spaces, and two communal atria. The atrium on the south side of the building encloses the existing stone facade courtyard and connects to Scudder Plaza and the other social science buildings in the neighborhood.
