Kamphoefner Hall is an uncompromising modern design with a total area of 39,134 square feet. It is named for Henry L. Kamphoefner, the first dean of the School of Design in 1948, when the school was formed from architectural engineering and landscape architecture. He accepted the position at NC State on two conditions: first, that he be allowed to bring five faculty members from his previous position at the University of Oklahoma; second, that he have the authority to fire non-tenured faculty of the units being combined with the school.

Under Kamphoefner's leadership, the school quickly attracted national attention for the quality of its programs, faculty and students. A fervent advocate of modern architecture, Kamphoefner had an unparalleled impact on the architecture of the State and the Southeast. Faculty members voted to name the building after him in 1989. He was awarded the North Carolina Medal in 1978 and the Topaz Medallion for Lifelong Achievement in Architecture by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture in 1977.
