The New Orleans Regional Modernism app is designed to highlight the significant, threatened and lost modern architecture of New Orleans. It is a project of Tulane University and DOCOMOMO US/Lousiana, a regional chapter of an international committee dedicated to the documentation and conservation of the buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement. This location-based app allows you to browse modern buildings in New Orleans by architect, neighborhood, category or status (extant, threatened or razed). Three tour routes have been identified: St. Charles Avenue Streetcar, Canal Streetcar, and the 2011 Modernism in New Orleans tour led by Francine Stock and Keli Rylance for the Society of Architectural Historians.
We are grateful to Tulane Libraries' Southeastern Architectural Archive, the Tulane School of Architecture's New Orleans Virtual Archive, the New Orleans Public Library's City Archives, and to many students and friends for providing photos. Descriptions of buildings were written by DOCOMOMO members, students in Francine Stock's Regional Modernism class at Tulane School of Architecture, and Karen Kingsley, author of Modernism in Louisiana. This software was designed and is supported by the Innovative Learning Center, a division of Tulane Technology Services.
