New Orleans, Louisiana
This 'Make it Right' Affordable Prototype House was built in response to the Katrina Hurricane in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. Dictated by the Make it Right Foundation, the project program and sustainability requirements were based on the ‘cradle to cradle’ philosophy. The house design with the familiar typology of the Shotgun Style of New Orleans, opens connections to the exterior and community with a porch and terrace. Prefabricated structural furniture units provide bracing, insulation and storage. As Director for Shigeru Ban Architects.
