A G&A research project that could change the way visitors see New Orleans was featured this week in The Advocate.
Jay Edwards, professor emeritus in LSU’s Department of Geography and Anthropology, and Gabriele Richardson, Ph.D. candidate in G&A, are combining more than 200 years of historical imagery to create a website and accompanying app that would allow visitors to see buildings across the city the way between 1800-1940.
“New Orleans has the greatest resources for the study of architectural history of any city in the world,” Dr. Edwards told The Advocate. “We have more historic structures in New Orleans than anyplace else in the United States.”
Dr. Edwards started working on the project in 2009 after receiving a grant from the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation.
