  • How and why a historical planning movement continues to thrive today
  • Strategies for identifying how current decisions impact the city's legacy
  • How the urban form of New Orleans neighborhoods relates to different periods of development


Hop on a bike and tour New Orleans's Garden City. This mobile workshop's route will take you from Lake Vista via the Lafitte Greenway and city park, through the neighborhoods of Treme-Lafitte and Bayou St. John, and to the shore of Lake Pontchartrain. We'll discuss the development of the neighborhood from lake reclamation to design (as inspired by the "Garden City" movement). Enjoy lunch at the famed Parkway Tavern.
