Richardson Memorial Hall is home to the School of Architecture on Tulane University’s campus. This Richardsonian Romanesque style building, originally used by the medical school, is currently undergoing a renovation to improve the overall quality of existing elements such as the façade, structure, and stairs. The renovation will also feature additions to the back of the building.
As a summer fabrication exercise, the existing façade of the building was built using layers of basswood, arches paper, and frosted acrylic. The roof and dormers were fabricated with layers of basswood and gray museum board. The interior of the building includes foam core floor plates that hold LED lights to illuminate the frosted acrylic windows.
