“The City is one of civilization’s lasting legacies, for within its structures, systems and moreover its spaces in-between, is our shelter, our economics, our history  and our ever-expanding culture. Accordingly, New Orleans’ legacy is a world treasure.

 

NOAF has the unique opportunity to share the story behind this treasure and demystify the built world and city-making to the interested community.”
