Lunch and Learn – Modern Materials for Traditional Design with the Vinyl Siding Institute

September 4 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm



This lunch and learn is hosted at the AIA New Orleans Center for Architecture and Design by the Vinyl Siding Institute.

As advocates of New Urbanism and traditional neighborhood development (TND), designers often face the task of convincing their builder clients that true TND entails more than a few facade details slapped on production models in a suburban plat. Architectural Design for Traditional Neighborhoods offers simple concepts that will help developers and builders quickly grasp the basic ideas behind traditional neighborhood platting and block-face design.

The presentation draws on the guidebook ‘Architectural Design for Traditional Neighborhoods’, by Korkut Onaran, Fernando Pagés Ruiz, Ronnie Pelusio, Tom Lyon, with a foreword by Andrés Duany  and afterward by Stephen A. Mouzon.
