New Orlean's Landry High School was nearly destroyed after Hurricane Katrina swept through the area. After many believed the school would not reopen, Landry High School was chosen by The Federal Emergency Management Agency, Louisiana Recovery Authority and Recovery School District to receive funding and grants to rebuild the school. The architectural team was challenged with designing a sustainable new high school that retained the old school's basic layout, with modern upgrades. The ceiling and exterior wall applications, along with other sustainable features of the school, have put the facility on track to receive LEED Silver Certification. Includes 10 photographs.
