Focusing on the diversity within the city of New Orleans, and reflecting on the unity that exists within this broad community, this project aims to bring a harmonious diversity to a cultural centre. Tulane Centre is an extension of Tulane University, located in the center of the 9th Ward, one of the most effected areas from Hurricane Katrina.
