 The French Quarter of New Orleans – otherwise known as the Vieux Carré – presents a visual architectural record of the diverse history of the city of New Orleans. This class presented the history of classicism in New Orleans architecture through lectures via a walking class showing the influence of classicism on architectural styles and building types that catalog the evolution present in the Vieux Carré today. The class began with an hour slide lecture and overview of the day and the history and architectural highlights of the Beauregard-Keyes House. The class ended in a French Quarter courtyard where there was a cocktail party at the home of Peter Patout.
