Duquesne University’s Lourdes Grotto was dedicated during  a ceremony held the University’s homecoming weekend.  UpStudio designed the new Lourdes Grotto  working closely with Duquesne University Facilities Management.  The new space provides  a quiet and contemplative seating area, incorporates new planting and screening and integrates a new gateway which welcomes visitors into the space.  The dedication and blessing was attended by University members, donors and alumni.
