Designing Urban Futures

Center for River Studies Exhibition

As part of a fellowship with LSU’s Coastal Sustainability Studio, I helped the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) to create the design for a coastal exhibition space in the Center for River Studies, Baton Rouge. The model and the exhibit serve as an important tool for teaching people about the tremendous challenges – and opportunities – Louisiana faces along its coast. Working with a team of researchers and designers, I conducted site research and design narratives to articulate a space for dialogue on issues that are changing the face of the Mississippi Valley forever.
