Reimagining Risk: New Orleans
Matthew Berman and Andrew Kotchen, Allen Eskew, Carey Shea
Introduced and moderated by James Russell
April 3, 2008Post-Katrina, the need to rebuild has provided the catalyst for architects and planners both to restore and re-envision New Orleans’s urban landscape. Underpinning their efforts is the research and support provided by a growing and increasingly interconnected network of social agencies and philanthropic organizations. Is there visible progress? What initiatives have been successful? Why have some design schemes failed? What short-term solutions hold promise? What is the long-term picture for the preservation, restoration, and rebuilding of New Orleans?
Part 3 of 4: Matthew Berman and Andrew Kotchen, principals of the New York City firm Workshop APD, discuss the building process of their winning entry in the first phase of the Global Green competition.
