After Katrina: MIT's Department of Urban Studies + Planning Takes On Big Questions About Rebuilding

May 3, 2013 - September 15, 2013

After the event of Hurricane Katrina, faculty, students, and alumni from MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP) and School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) worked in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast with many organizations and on many issues. This exhibition showcases the work of DUSP and MIT in New Orleans.

These projects have been sustained and evolved through the entrepreneurship of faculty and students who developed and built on relationships in the city and dedicated teaching, studies, and community service work toward post-Katrina rebuilding efforts.
