Join Tulane University Professor Emeritus of Architecture John P. Klingman as he leads a tour of the Lake Vista neighborhood. Historically important for the original Spanish Fort constructed by Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville along the edge of Bayou St John, the neighborhood is noteworthy today for its revolutionary planning concept. Beginning around 1938, Lake Vista was laid out as an excellent example of Garden City design. Beginning at the neighborhood center, the tour will explore the community’s institutional buildings and proceed along one of the pedestrian paths toward the lake, concluding with a reception at a private residence.
