Abstract

First a hurricane, now oil; contemporary New Orleans is revising its relation with landscape and water, out of necessity and out of ambition. Since Hurricane Katrina devastated the city in 2005, the Dutch Dialogue workshops. initiated by local architect David Waggonner and the Royal Dutch Embassy - have engaged in a knowledge exchange aiming for new harmony in the landscape, equally inspired by Dutch water cities and love for 'the big easy'. Dutch landscape architects explore how a transformation of the New Orleans' storm water system can increase stormwater resiliency and at the same time contribute to the revival of the city
