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.

Courtney Williams and Michael Shoriak of Cypress Building Conservation and Robby Cangelosi of Koch and Wilson Architects have been working on a major HVAC retrofit for the Hermann-Grima House, one of News Orleans most significant house museums. The project carefully studied the best approach to sensitively install new equipment in the historic structure with minimal destruction to provide optimal performance balancing preservation of the museum collections and human comfort. It is hoped that the results will serve as a model for other museums.

New Orleans Architecture examines the city’s built environment from its founding in 1718 to the present, as well as its historic neighborhoods. The city’s architectural legacy is explored from the standpoint of architectural stylistic trends, their relationship to national and international trends, the forces and architects that helped shape the styles, and local building types. Thirty-eight architectural styles are examined including Colonial, various Revivals, Aesthetic, Eclectic, Arts and Crafts, and the Modern Movement.
