New Orleans architecture as it was, is, and should be. A stunning presentation of 19th-century gouache and watercolor archival paintings of New Orleans neighborhoods, this volume presents what old, renovated, restored, and new buildings not only might look like, but how they should look. An educational tool, architectural pattern book, city planner's handbook, and visual treasure, this resource invites its readers to study the footprints of the city's original edifices in order to rebuild and restore with authenticity. Examples of each New Orleans house type, historic plans for each house, and contemporary adaptive-use floor plans are highlighted.
