Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design

Our work focuses on equitable process, meaningful outcomes, design excellence and inclusion as critical parts of the design process.

Our design work, whether a visual narrative or a built structure, is often a small, but critical contribution to advancing the ongoing efforts of our partner organizations. We develop projects in collaboration with faculty designers and professional consultants to create designs that strive for beauty, social justice and true sustainability, while working with other experts to build capacity in our partner organizations. Our work focuses on equitable process, meaningful outcomes, design excellence and inclusion as critical parts of the design process.

A group of skaters got together and started a Do-It-Yourself skatepark in 2010. The skaters approached Small Center for technical assistance in protecting the park and design assistance in continuing its build out.
Over the past 15 years, the Small Center has completed over 130 engaged, high quality design projects with partners across New Orleans and trained over 600 students.
