The rebuilding of New Orleans will be a touchstone for much discussion and critique concerning the constitution of the American city. Over the next few years, competitions, protests, editorials, and design studios will situate themselves in the cauldron of post-Katrina New Orleans.

Here is one place where the discussion will continue: www.urban.csuohio.edu/forum/neworleans
