A series of images featuring the city of New Orleans, LA. Creole culture comes alive on these streets. You become immersed in the NOLA way of life as soon as you touch down, from Po’boys to Beignets, bourbon on Bourbon St. The music and dope vibes are the city’s soul.
“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, 
which is what there is and all there is” -Alan Watts
While reflecting on this idea of past and present, the common theme of Time as an architectural element came up… How do we learn from the past; innovate materials and blend a modern methodology with theory from those before us? The next great pieces of architecture will do just that; bring us closer to one and other as buildings of the past did, materials of late while marrying new-age techniques, and culture will be revitalized in cities because of places we create for and through collaboration.

A cornerstone of the Jazz scene, greats such as Louis Daniel Armstrong; Jelly Roll Morton: and Fats Domino came out of New Orleans and it's safe to say the music of today would not be the same without Jazz influences such as these. New Orleans as a context for not just this music but are in general leads me to ask the question, ‘how does this city lack in more great architecture’, the series looks at the art that came out of the NOLA and investigates the potential architectural feature this city could have; the challenges to building in such a historic context; and the overall elements and future projects coming to the city.
