Maps depict New Orleans’s socioeconomics.

After the Flood: Building on Higher Ground, an exhibition organized by record and Tulane University for the U.S. Pavilion at the 10th International Venice Architecture Biennale in 2006, opens at Los Angeles’s A+D Architecture and Design Museum on April 18. Curated by Christian D. Bruun, with the help of Jens Holm, the show explores the environmental, urban, and social history of New Orleans—as well as the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. After the Flood also presents proposals for replacement single- and multifamily housing. Since 2006, under the auspices of the U.S. State Department, the show has traveled to Thailand and Panama. It remains in Los Angeles until June 27. For complete online coverage of the original exhibition as it appeared in Venice, including an illustrated room-by-room map, visit RECORD’s special After the Flood Web site.
