Royal Street is one of the oldest streets in New Orleans. The street starts @ Canal Street, runs through the French Quarter, Faubourgh Marigny, Bywater and Lower 9th Ward neighbourhoods to the Jackson Barracks. This Sketchbook takes the viewer on a journey on this street with fragments and moments along the path inclusive of remnants of Katrina's destruction and rebuilding of the city.
I am an architectural designer with a formal education from this city while @ Tulane having met mentors and now peers and colleagues that also are connected to this phenomenal city. This project is dedicated to those that call New Orleans their current home and for those friends and mentors that have called this city their home and continue to rebuild and focus their efforts on the tapesty that is the city as well as pay homage in their own paths of design, environment and creativity.
The orange hemp stitching and the watercolor cables of urban scape connecting and powering the city above as well as minimal washes throughout the book call out parts of the whole pertaining to detail within the sketch as well as connection to the city. This is achieved through the medium of the hand stitched binding and speciality papers selected of transparency, texture, and thicknesses indiciative of the multiple thresholds and layers of New Orleans and Royal Street.
