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.
