TuSA Uptown

The Newcomb Quad Pavilions at TuSA Uptown are one of the temporary homes for Tulane School of Architecture's studios.

The Pavilions

We have relocated several of our studios to Newcomb Quad while Richardson Memorial Hall is under construction. Visit our Renovation FAQ page. These five temporary spaces are located in the center of campus with one acting as a “Central Hub” for the school. This Central Hub has space for community work, lounge areas, meeting spaces, as well as a fabrication space for large format and 3D printing. View the map of the Newcomb Quad pavilions.

We also have administrative office space for faculty and staff and additional classrooms and studio space for students at TuSA Downtown, located in the 2nd and 4th floors of NOCHI (New Orleans Culinary and Hospitality Institute), 725 Howard Avenue.

Pavilion Design Competition

The 2022 Newcomb Quad Pavilion Design Competition was launched in Spring 2022. Students were asked to consider the physical presence of the pavilions on campus and how temporary installations can engage our student body and the campus at large. A winner was selected by a jury of faculty, staff and students from 5 finalist proposals.
