This map is a collaborative project-in-process of the class, Regional Modernism: the New Orleans Archives, Tulane University School of Architecture. Our Google map of Regional Modernism in New Orleans was created with the help of MapBuilder and GPS Visualizer.
Our primary sources are the New Orleans Public Library Index to Building Plans online and the Southeastern Architectural Archive finding aids. We would be lost without Sam Wilson's A Guide to New Orleans Architecture 1699-1959. The buildings listed date from the period 1925-1975. We have not made evaluations for historic significance. Our very wide net certainly captures a few dogs here and there, but we hope it will also reveal some treasures. At this point, we have nearly 850 sites and will turn our energies to photo-documentation and the collection of oral histories.
