This thesis focuses on a architectural solution for the culture rehabilitation of the people of the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans, Louisiana. The proposition for a cultural center is crucial. Therefore, the most affective way to initiate such a concept is to lend from what they already had, Jazz music. Since New Orleans is a catalyst for the birth of Jazz, it will provide a focus for such a cultural center. Furthermore, the thesis focuses on the history of jazz, creating a timeline of different genres throughout the site. The cultural center is not intended to be limited to a gathering place, but a place that also educates, and entertains. The thesis exhibits these possibilities of different spaces that accomplish community and civic pride. Therefore, the appreciation of the Lower Ninth Ward is fully captivated and affective to the spirit of its people.
