"New Orleans under Reconstruction, the Crisis of Planning"

Friday, October 23rd, 5 pm - 8 pm
Saturday, October 24th, 9 am - 7 pm

Tulane University, Lavin-Bernick Center, Kendall Cram Room

Free and open to the public; a public reception follows Friday's session. Forty urban planners, architects, landscape architects, scientists, academics, and activists who work locally and nationally will consider current work and advance debate about action toward the resurgence of the city. The timing of these debates is all the more crucial as the city moves rapidly toward a mayoral race.
Issues concerning environmental ethics and sustainability, master planning, water management, housing equity, contemporary design and green building, cultural landscapes, citizen activism, and the right to the city will all be prominently addressed.
