© Timothy Hursley Project description of L.B. Landry High School, New Orleans by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple: In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, flooding 80% of the city and essentially destroying the public school system. This new high school for the Louisiana Department of Education Recovery School District was part of a post-Katrina “quick start” construction program to accelerate the replacement of five damaged schools within an extremely aggressive timeline (6 months for design and 20 months for construction) while a new comprehensive masterplan for the New Orleans school system was underway.
