Couturie Forest Strategic Plan

City Park

New Orleans City Park
New Orleans, LA

The Couturie Forest is a 62-acre site located within City Park in the heart of New Orleans. The site has traditionally been a popular bird watching site and activist for wilderness preserve, but Hurricane Katrina devastated the forest in 2005. This project focuses on the establishment of a series of resilient infrastructures and highlights the need for re-establishing the ecological, educational, recreational, and cultural systems of the site in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
