WHAT: The Tulane-LSU Design Partnership, a collaboration between Tulane and LSU architecture students and the Louisiana Landmarks Society, presents its ideas for documenting, restoring, preserving and re-using the old Carrollton Courthouse.

WHEN: Thursday, Jan. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m.

WHERE: Richardson Memorial Hall, Room 201, on the uptown campus of Tulane University. (Richardson Memorial is near the St. Charles Avenue entrance of campus.)

WHO: The presentation will be made by students in the Tulane Master of Preservation Studies program and the LSU Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture, under the guidance of Tulane professor Michael Shoriak and LSU professor Lake Douglas.

MORE: The Tulane-LSU project grew out of efforts by the Louisiana Landmarks Society to ensure that the structure is not destroyed or damaged when it comes under new ownership. Located at 701 S. Carrollton Ave., the old courthouse was built in 1855 and is on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. The presentation is open to the public.
