Architect Jacques Levet leads listeners through the history and architecture of New Orleans in this installment of our popular mini-series Cities We Live In. Jacques shares which landmarks of his home city are most inspiring to him as a designer, and discusses how the city's evolution has been affected by the periods of French, Spanish and American control.
Cities We Live In is a study of what makes our favorite cities stand out, and in doing so conveying a need for a return to traditional design principles which make them so beloved. Not simply a history of urban form, Cities We Live In teaches us why good places matter.
