description  
The aim of this project is to reclaim the previous Claiborne Ave neutral ground in Treme/Lafitte beneath the I-10 elevated interstate for community and educational activities.
Elements of the scheme combine to provide an emergency hurricane facility beneath the safety of the raised concrete deck when required.
The raised highway deck is clad below with pre-cast concrete components which reduce the traffic noise at ground level and reduce fumes through planting. This also provides a zone for servicing and infrastructure which would be protected in the event of a crisis.
Below this pre-fabricated timber components provide a freeform series of spaces on the historical neutral ground to accommodate the required educational and community functions.
