World Trade Center New Orleans Renovation Central Business Dristrict: New Orleans, Louisiana

FFOLIA OLIAGE GE LINE LIN NE FO OLIAG LIAGE LLII

The site plan shows the original structure and its relationship to the renovated Spanish Plaza. The plaza surface is fractured upward to create a space below for retail, while the above surface is a green roof for residents and guest to relax, similar to an urban park.

Site Rendering This perspective of the ferry terminal shows how the fractured surface creates the retail space below and leisure space above. The drawing also shows the relationship between these two spaces and the program of the terminal.

Perspective: Algiers Ferry Terminal

The red line that wraps around the surfaces creates a datum that divides the above space and the below space. It also is a form a branding to connect the WTC to the plaza.


This project focused on renovating a historic building in New Orleans, Louisiana. Due to the city restrictions, the facades and structure of the building must keep it’s integrity. These restrictions became a major challenge to the design. Urban design was also an important aspect to the project, specifically the redesign of Spanish Plaza. The design focused on creating retail opportunities but also allowing a place for leisure for the guests and residents of the WTC. Each apartment level consists of 16 apartments divided into 4 apartments per building wing. FOLIAGE LINE F

Perspective: Shopping and Leisure at the Plaza


Due to the lack of parking in the Central Business District of New Orleans, Parking was implemented into the site design to accommodate hotel guests, residents, and travelers using the ferry terminal. Because the structure contained both apartments and a hotel, dividing and controlling private and public space became crucial.

Each hotel level consists of 24 rooms divided into 6 rooms per building wing. FOLIAGE LINE F

This project was focused on using an environmental system component called the “Breathing Wall.” The system allows for the wall to react to solar conditions by opening apertures to let breezes flow into the interior.
