AIA New Orleans Hosts Rosa Keller Library Building Tour

AIA New Orleans is pleased to host a building tour of the Rosa F. Keller Library & Center on April 19, 2012. The renovation, designed by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple and built by Ryan Gootee General Contractors is a New Orleans neighborhood library comprised of two buildings joined together with the intention that they function as a whole.

One building is a historically significant bungalow built as a residence in 1917, sited prominently on the corner of South Broad Street and Napoleon Avenue. The other building, built in 1993 specifically to function as a library, was home to the main reading room and stock areas. Both buildings were severely flooded by levee breaks attributed to Hurricane Katrina.
