title   New Canals Needed

description  
Canals serve to unite, not divide communities in this design proposal for the Central City Neighborhood. Recognizing New Orleans need for water management this project incorporates a flood mitigation plan with a community rebuilding proposal that uses canals as pathways that enhance the neighborhood’s appeal instead of detracting from it. The proposed below street canals serve to provide much needed draining while adding a Venice-like quality to the neighborhood and its surroundings. The canals would not be mere infrastructural components but elements that would attract people to the area creating a picturesque and useful new design for the neighborhood.
