    Spray-painted marks such as this, still visible on the exteriors of abandoned and even many occupied homes throughout New Orleans, were used for search-and-rescue purposes following Hurricane Katrina. Coding identified whether the homes had been searched and if people (alive or deceased) were found.

    Built on a vacant lot facing the fairgrounds (the site of Jazzfest), these two duplex condominiums were built with panelized steel walls prefabricated in a factory 30 miles west of New Orleans, including a 4-foot steel knee-wall foundation. The homes also feature fiber-cement siding, bamboo flooring, and raised-seam metal roofs. The structures are wired for tie-in to photovoltaics or backup generators so that a light in each room, the refrigerator, and ceiling fans can be used during power outages.

    Though the brick fa??ade on this Gentilly neighborhood home remained in tact following Katrina, the rest of the dwelling, which sat under 10 feet of water, wasn't so lucky. The home was remodeled green with features including a tankless water heater, open-cell foam insulation, low-VOC interior paint, Energy Star-rated appliances, Shaw Epic green engineered wood flooring, low-flow faucets, and eco-friendly cabinets. Wall studs and scrap metal were recycled during the construction process.


  • OBJECTDesign for a Tile Floor
John Gregory Crace 
Circa 1850s 
$4,000 
The Crace family made a name for itself during the height of the British empire by designing ornate interiors throughout London, including in Windsor Castle and the Houses of Parliament. This tempura-and-ink rendering for floor tiles in the entry of the Conservative Club shows one quarter of a design, which could be rotated 90 degrees for each adjacent quadrant of the square room. It and other 19th century design objects are on display through Aug. 30 at the ArchiTech Gallery of Architectural Art in Chicago.

  • BOOK
 Ten Canonical Buildings 1950-2000 
By Peter Eisenman 
During his lectures at Princeton, Eisenman zeroed in on 10 projects, including works by Le Corbusier, Aldo Rossi, and James Sterling. The overall selection is less interesting than the individual explanations. Eisenman cleanly dissects each project with a diagrammed analysis that leaves little room for argument.
