New Urbanist Work in New Orleans


Despite a concerted attempt by certain factions to keep the new urbanists out of New Orleans, the wall eventually fell. Andres Duany and Ray Gindroz give their perspectives on the slow, often agonizing rebuilding of the city Andres deemed “not among the most haphazard, poorest, or misgoverned American cities, but rather the most organized, wealthiest, cleanest, and competently governed of the Caribbean cities.” They will discuss why frustration has permeated the process, and how resident input is translated into the slow process of implementation. Michael Mehaffy will offer a response based on his work implementing the neighborhood resource centers.
