Architecture School

ARTS CHANNEL – Tuesdays from 24 April, 8.30pm

The six-part series from creators Michael Selditch and Stan Bertheaud follows a group of students at Tulane University’s prestigious School of Architecture as they submit competing designs for an affordable home in Katrina-battered New Orleans. The stakes are high: the winning model will be built during the course of the school year and put up for sale, enabling one fledgling architect to begin his or her career with a high-profile splash.

Mondays from 23 March, 10pm on LIVING CHANNEL

A group of students at Tulane University’s prestigious School of Architecture participate in a programme to design and build a house in a low-income neighbourhood of New Orleans devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The entire process is followed from academic design criticism through to the physical build and the response of the neighbourhood to modern architecture appearing on their corner. The series opens a window onto the art and science of the architecture while telling a unique and uplifting story about the literal rebuilding of New Orleans.
