Connor Sports Flooring
A number of Tulane’s LEED projects have achieved the Certified Wood credit using Forest Stewardship Council-certified, sustainably harvested wood for more than half of the project’s new wood. In our new Hertz Center basketball and volleyball practice facility, the court floors from Connor Sports Flooring are made from FSC-certified maple.


Grow Dat Youth Farm
In New Orleans City Park, a structure made from stacked green shipping containers rises up among the cypress trees. The Grow Dat Youth Farm is a youth job-training program, outdoor classroom, and active farm. The master plan and design were done by Tulane City Center, the community outreach arm of Tulane’s School of Architecture.


Bayou Bienvenue Wetland Platform
A collaboration between Lower Ninth Ward residents and architects from the University of Colorado, this platform is built up and over a high levee wall. It restores the neighborhood’s access to the Bayou Bienvenue wetlands and provides a place within New Orleans to see and understand coastal wetland loss.

Kaleidoscope Recycling Bins
You should always select your trash and recycling containers together and place them in pairs or stations. People love the message sent by pairing the half-round Kaleidoscope trash container with the larger square recycling one. You can select the color, label, lid, and size appropriate for your program and assemble them together into an attractive recycling station.
