URBANbuild program launches new website


Nov 20, 2017

Tulane University School of Architecture’s award-winning design/build program, URBANbuild, recently launched a new website showcasing the program’s evolution and impact over the past 12 years.

URBANbuild brings together a team of architecture students to collaboratively design and construct a home over the course of two semesters. The program works to enrich students’ development as professional designers while helping to revitalize New Orleans’ rich heritage.

“It has been extremely rewarding to spend the past few months working with a great team of web designers, writers and students who have worked tirelessly to collect and organize the content for this new website,” said URBANbuild Director Byron Mouton.

The redesigned website tells the story of the many people, partnerships and processes it takes to make each project a reality.

“Everyone who has participated in adding to the program's body of research should be extremely proud,” said Mouton. “To our current and past students, congratulations. To our community partners and administration, thank you so much for the continued support."

In-depth project profiles feature URBANbuild’s growing body of work, with alumni case studies detailing the program’s impact on individual students. The online resource will serve as a tool to further the URBANbuild mission and chronicle future projects.

The website was created by Extra Small Design and made possible by the Roloson Foundation. Visit www.urbanbuild.tulane.edu for more information.
