Pavilion Student Experience

Temporary Pavilions
2022 Newcomb Quad Pavilion Design Competition Winner: MELT

With Richardson Memorial Hall (RMH) undergoing renovation, the Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) moved our studios and operations to five temporary pavilions on Tulane’s Newcomb Quad and will be working out of these spaces through Fall 2023. While we are excited for the renovation, we know studio culture and time spent with fellow students in and around RMH has been a significant part of life at TuSA.

Therefore, while we may be away from our home temporarily, TuSA hopes to not only continue, but enhance the student experience in the pavilions through the facilitation of student-driven design competitions, student exhibitions, improvement and beautification efforts, student engagement events and much more.

In 2022, we launched our first Newcomb Quad Pavilion Design Competition that asked students to consider the physical presence of the pavilions on campus and how temporary installations can engage our student body and the campus at large. After a school-wide selection process including a jury of staff, faculty, and students, the final project was selected on April 8th to be built during 2022. We want to continue this type of work but…We Need Your Help!
