All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

Tulane-LSU Design Partnership Examines Futures for Carrollton Courthouse

September 28, 2015

In response to the Orleans Parish School Board's move to deaccession the Carrollton Courthouse building, Professors Michael Shoriak of the Master of Preservation Studies program within the Tulane School of Architecture and Lake Douglas, Associate Professor in  LSU’s Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture, will conduct a collaborative project in October to determine possibilities for documenting, restoring, preserving, and re-using the building and its landscape setting as one of the City’s most distinguished landmarks.

John Stubbs, Director of Tulane’s Preservation Studies program, and Orleans Parish School Board member Woody Koppel said the results of  this academic study will first be presented to invited respondents representing government officials, cultural institutions and community leaders who could be part of the solution for re-purposing and saving the building. Following the completion of the joint study during the month of October, presentations on the results will offered on two occasions this fall. Based on ideas and suggestions gained from the initial presentation, a subsequent presentation to the public will be sponsored by the Louisiana Landmarks Society later this year.
