Offer-ing a unique setting for local families and friendsto join together to celebrate their special occa-sions, theAudubon Tea Room was a place wherewhite gloves were worn and first kisses were sto-len. Still a cherished reminiscence today, theAudubon Tea Room is deeply woven into the richfabric of New Orleans heritage.”The new Audubon Tea Room was designed byCashio, Cochran, Torre/Design Consortium, Ltd.,in collaboration with The Mathes Group.The new one-storied building will emulate, in formand volume the original Audubon Tea Room. Instyle and construction, however, it reflects thearchitecture of existing new Zoo buildings withits rich blend of brick, stucco, and copper.

  • 17. NOCCASITE SELECTION-A CASE STUDYNEW ORLEANS CENTER FOR CRE-ATIVE ARTSNew Orleans Center for Creative Arts(NOCCA) spent several years search-ing for a site. Each site demanded asite analysis be made to determine ifthe architectural program could be ac-commodated at that particular site. Inaddition, Zoning and Building Codesimposed constraints upon each pieceof property. At the same time, siteanalysis presents additional opportu-nities and/or constraints unique to eachsite.NOCCA considered numerous sitesover many years beforesettling upon the chosenlocation just downtownfromthe French Quarter.The availability of aWestern Electric manu-facturing facility (now afurniture store and ware-house) in Mid Cityprompted the originalcharrette in 1986 (coor-dinated by the late BenGraves of Educational FacilitiesLaboratories).The Warehouse District re-de-velopment spurred by the 1984World’s Fair produced a num-ber of candidates for adaptivere-use, as did the old U.S. Mintbuilding on Esplanade Avenueat the north end of the FrenchQuarter.New construction in City Parknot far from the New OrleansMuseum of Art proved to be anidle dream. However, when newconstruction on a empty lot ad-joining a Standard Coffee warehouseinspired a class project at Tulane Uni-versity School of Architecture, theirimaginative view studies embraced vi-sual access to the Mississippi River andsurrounding historic neighborhoods.The lot, however, proved too small forthe instructional and architectural pro-gram and it was not available.This new interest of NOCCA in explor-ing areas ripe for neighborhood revi-talization and economic development

It is onthe site of the old Cotton SteamPress warehouses, which had alsoserved as passenger substationsyears ago when Homer Pleasy pur-chased his fateful trainticket amidstthe cotton bales.Accessible to the Interstate (I-10)via Elysian Fields Avenue, this lo-cation allows NOCCA to continueits development as a center for thearts training for high school stu-dents commuting from the eightparish (county) metro-region ofNew Orleans.But, as much as this site was rea-sonable in cost (being partly do-nated by Southern Railways) andpresented opportunities for theadaptive reuse of historically sig-nificant structures in historic neigh-borhoods, there were also problemsto be dealt with.There are the obvious additionalcost s in rehabilitating historicstructures to accommodate presentuses. There is a railroad track bisect-ing the property and there are highvoltage lines running along the edgeof the site.By creatively dealing with eachof the “problems” and lookingupon themas opportunities ratherthan “problems”, the unique so-lution that is now NOCCAevolved. Yes, it cost a bit moreto satisfy the preservation au-thorities while adaptively reha-bilitating the existing ware-houses, but the students now getanarchitecturalhistorylessonandcity history lesson by osmosis.The track, serving the wharvesalongtheMississippi, teaches the eco-nomic importance of the port to theCityand, theysay, trains will onlyrun early in the morning and earlyin the evening; notenough to con-flict with normal use times for thefacilities. The high voltage linesproved, after studies, to be a non-issue.The important message is to ap-proach available sites with posi-tive, creative thoughts. Solutionswill generally appear.TMG

In the Fall of 1990, the Man-deville Street Wharf was offered to NOCCA as a possiblesite by the Board of Commissioners of the Port of New Or-leans. In December of 1990, the architects conducted a collo-quium to review the merits of this site as a location for the Cen-ter. However, in 1993, an alternate site was purchased by theNOCCA Institute. This site is on the Mississippi River in Fau-bourg Marigny, adjacent to the warf.We have developed the unique designin response to the site by incorporatingseveral existing, wonderful warehousebuildings, in response to the program,by weaving all classrooms, studios andperformance (Dance, Theater, an Ex-perimental Theatre, Recital Hall, JazzClub and Art Gallery) spaces into abuilding which evokes the spontaneityand creativity of the students, and inresponse to the budget by utilizing ap-propriate materials and building sys-tems.
