URBANbuild local/global

William Stout Books / Tulane University / US Department HUD
Designed with the authors Ila Berman and Mona El Khafif

URBANbuild is a design/build program founded by Ila Berman (then at Tulane University) meant to address New Orleans’ deteriorating neighborhoods. This project documents the URBANbuild program’s contributions to the city’s post-storm rehabilitation and contextualizes URBANbuild’s work with knowledge and experience drawn from similar efforts in cities around the world.

The book operates across a wide range of distinct scales—from the macro scale of the region and city to the micro scale of individual works of architecture—and explores innovative design strategies for housing and urban regeneration applicable to cities around the globe.
