Urban Build #9 New Orleans Tulane University

In the summer of 2005 a small group of students and faculty developed a design/build programthat would address the deteriorating neighborhoods of urban New Orleans. The Tulane School of Architecture created the UrbanBuild program to provide students with a platform to work collectively on the design, development and construction of affordable housing and urban interventions prototypes. The goal was to provide struggling neighborhoods with some sense of progress and value.
