New Orleans architectural history is a mosaic of trends, cultural forces, and individual genius. The 2016 Williams Research Center Symposium, Perspectives on New Orleans Architecture: Past, Present, Future examines topics in each of these areas, offering a look at the region’s rich history and some thoughts on prospects yet to come. An evening keynote address and a daylong program of individual talks by architects, historians, and preservationists offer insights into the larger subject of architectural practice and its effects on New Orleans and its citizens over time.

The symposium is presented in conjunction with An Architect and His City: Henry Howard’s New Orleans, 1837–1884, an exhibition on view at 533 Royal Street.
