Katrina and New Orleans: One Year Later
Call for Editorials, Opinions and Thought Pieces
MARCH 15, 2006, Deadline The Executive Editor is looking for short (500-2,000 word) essays on Katrina, its aftermath and rebuilding. What have we learned and what are we still learning? What new place-based imaginaries are emerging from the rubble and what interesting alliances are being formed. How have the discourses of "natural" disasters, socio-technical failures, environmental justice, and sustainability been transformed in this "Katrina" landscape? How is culture preserved/transformed by the changes, both temporary and permanent. Accepted essays will be published in the September 2006 issue of JAE.

Send one copy of your essay to Barbara Allen, Executive Editor-JAE, 4200 Wisconsin Av., NW #106-156, Washington , DC 20016 or email ballen@vt.edu. Please note that design work is not accepted for this call.


Rebuilding "The Big Easy" In late November, Architectural Record and McGraw-Hill Construction in partnership with Tulane University School of Architecture announced two international competitions to generate housing proposals for New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina. “Rebuilding ‘The Big Easy’: An International Competition for New Housing in New Orleans” combines a student competition for a New Orleans house prototype and a “High-Density on the High-Ground” competition open to all participants. The goal of the competition is to bring new designs for much-needed housing in New Orleans. The student competition aims for an affordable single-family home prototype on a typical New Orleans lot that can be replicated throughout the city. due march 1. more here


something i'm hoping to get involved in once i get settled in the chi:

Got an an email from Melissa, a former colleage, now Architecture & Construction Program Manager at the Chicago Public Schools who is working with Chicago Architecture Foundation in partnership with the American Architectural Foundation(AAF) which established the Architecture & Design K-12 Education Network in October 2005. The Architecture & Design K-12 Education Network is dedicated to fostering the growth and development of architecture and design education on a national level. The Network further strives to raise youth awareness about the built environment and advance the integration of the design process across the K-12 curriculum.

They are currently planning the launch of several initiatives for 2006 – a new website and series of Network programs and services to be unveiled in the spring and an inaugural National Conference taking place in Chicago in the fall. go to the website, www.architecture.org to sign on with the network.
