The platform was broken into six groups investigating Lafitte Housing Projects Summer 2006 | New Orleans different housing case studies: courtyard, mat, slab, point block, Rowhouse, and mixed density schemes. Under the guidance of Associate Profes- TRANSVERSE SECTION sor Scott Bernhard, we applied our hypothetical insertions derived from the original canonical projects. My partners, Mike Kazazis and Maggie Van Dusen, and I analyzed precedents in the slab housing category such as; Unite d’Habitation, Gallaratese Quarter, and the Gifu Kitagata Apart- ment Building. After looking at the basic strategies of the different architects we decided that Sejima’s Gifu Kitagata Apartment building was the most suitable and compelling to employ. Its purpose is to revitalize housing in a low-crime, mixed-income area. The plan allows for the green way to continue through the buildings and over the major streets.The final project was submitted to HUD in a grant proposal for Tulane and displayed in an UNITS PER ACRE: 28 LAFITTE CORRIDOR PLAN exhibit at the Ogden Museum in New Orleans.
