New Orleans Disaster Relief Housing
in the office of Marlon Blackwell Architect
These two house designs were the result of an invited show sponsored by the Tulane School of Architecture in response to Hurricane Katrina. Both prototypes were based on a reinterpretation of the traditional New Orleans shotgun house, with the primary objectives of lifting the houses above the flood plain and allowing the houses to armor themselves during inclement weather, both while maintaining the vibrant porch culture central to New Orleans society.
