Weatherhead Hall was distinguished with a Society for College and University Planning Excellence in Architecture for a New Building Honor Award this past summer. Tulane University and the design team of Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company and John C. Williams Architects were recognized at SCUP’s annual 2013 conference. The jury praised the way the spaces, surfaces and details all synthesized to encourage student interaction within the residence hall. Sustainability was another emphasis in the design of the building, which is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

AIA New Orleans granted the Hertz Center a 2013 Design Merit Award at its annual Design Awards ceremony in March. The new practice facility for Men’s and Woman’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball was designed by Gould Evans Associates and Lee Ledbetter and Associates. The jury appreciated the project's handling of scale with respect to the double court gymnasium and the transparency of the interior spaces. In keeping with the university’s commitment to green building design, The Hertz Center is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Construction continues on Zimple House with the concrete structure rising through Fall 2013. Zimple House will be the third residence hall following the residential college model with Wall Residential College and Weatherhead Hall preceding it.  Zimple House is anticipated to open in time for Move-In of the Fall 2014 semester.

McAlister Place Project

Design Team:

Wayne Troyer Architects with Towers|Golde Landscape Architects

Master Plan:

Mossop + Michaels, Towers|Golde Landscape Architects, IMS Engineers, and LAM Partners Inc.




The McAlister Place Project is part of a long-term, campus beautification project that will eventually unite the quads between McAlister Auditorium and Newcomb Hall, transforming them into a beautiful and vibrant pedestrian environment with limited traffic and parking in the areas flanking the green space. 

The transformation of McAlister Place is funded through the generosity of a university donor. Work was centered on the closing of McAlister Drive between Freret Street and Drill Road, as the area was changed from a through street and parking area to a beautiful pedestrian landscape that provides a lovely and safer place for walking and cycling through the Tulane campus. Construction began on Monday, May 18 with a major campus drainage improvement project, and is now open to pedestrian traffic.
