The School of Architecture’s URBANbuild has partnered with Bethlehem Lutheran Church on a four-year project to build four Americans with Disabilities Act–accessible housing units in Central City. URBANbuild, a design/build program in which teams of students design and construct prototypical, affordable houses around New Orleans, is directed by Byron Mouton, Lacey Senior Professor of Practice. Mouton met Bethlehem’s pastor, Ben Groth, who is also a PhD student in Tulane’s history department, during URBANbuild’s 2021 project, which happened to be next to Bethlehem’s parking lot.
