JUNE – AROUND THE CORNER

Pay attention and you’ll spot corner store buildings all over the city. Many of them have been adaptively reused as residences. Show us one that catches your eye.

 

JULY – THE GRANDEST MANSION

It’s simple. Show us big, pretty houses.

 

AUGUST – S.O.S.

Unfortunately, blighted houses and buildings can be found all around New Orleans. Share photos of buildings that you believe should be restored and returned to grandeur.

 

SEPTEMBER – MID-MOD

New Orleans has many examples of noteworthy modernist architecture from the mid-20th century. Share photos of some of your favorite local Mid-Century Modern buildings.

 

OCTOBER – IT’S A SIGN

Ghost signs, neon signs, tile signs, hand-painted signs, iron signs. Share photos of interesting historic signs.

 

NOVEMBER – TWINS, TRIPLETS, QUADRUPLETS

Have you ever done a doubletake while walking down a New Orleans street, realizing neighboring houses are, more or less, structurally identical? Show us sibling houses that catch your eye.

 

DECEMBER – MOST UNUSUAL BUILDINGS

New Orleans’ uniqueness shines not only through its colorful characters, but also through its unusual buildings. Share photos of those buildings that make you go “hmm.”
