Public Interest Design Fellowship

Summer 2019

New Orleans

This design-build project culminated in a gathering space for a community garden in the 7th Ward of New Orleans. Designed to mimic the typical shotgun house spatial arrangement and silhouette, the rope and timber cladding on the steel 4×4 structure densifies to create a more intimate environment as one moves deeper into the space. The facade design is a nod to the project’s location in ‘The Cut,’ an area of the 7th ward with a peculiar make-up of streets.

Part of the Public Interest Design Fellowship at the Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design. Other Contributing Fellows Include Hannah Bannister, Griffin Daly, Taylor Scott, Chewys Parra-Paulino, and Maddison Wells.
