Overview

The city of New Orleans is one of America's greatest "outdoor museums." The thousands of houses that line its streets are examples of architecture from all over the world, including unique styles that actually originated in New Orleans. The architectural styles of France, Spain, the Caribbean, and early America can all be seen in New Orleans, and help to illustrate the wide variety of peoples who have called New Orleans home.
In A Young Person's Guide to New Orleans Houses, Lloyd Vogt, an award-winning New Orleans architect, offers young people a fascinating glimpse into the history of New Orleans. Dividing his discussion into two parts--house types and house styles--he gives them a basic yet comprehensive first course in New Orleans building design in a language they can understand. Also provided are labeled drawings for easy identification, and a complete glossary to give kids a working knowledge of common architectural terms. This is a fun and instructive book that will introduce young people to the diversity and significance of New Orleans architecture.

Surveys the varying styles of houses found in New Orleans and how they evolved.

    Read with a Southern Draw

    Mr. Vogt's written expression of this beautiful architecture is outstanding and a true work of art. For those born and raised in the south, his drawings offer us a way to recapture and rebuild days gone by.
