We are pleased to note this national award given to a Tulane School of Architecture Board of Advisors member, Mac Ball, FAIA and his firm. In the award description, the APA states, "Changing landscape and climate have forced communities to adjust the way in which they prepare for water-related crises. In the coastal region surrounding New Orleans, planners face an even greater challenge in solving how to reduce flooding caused by rainwater falling inside of existing flood protection infrastructure like levees.
The Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan addresses management of stormwater, surface water, and groundwater within levees in an innovative and regionally specific way. The Urban Water Plan is the first regional water plan of its kind in the country."
