Project Home Again is one of the many organizations invested in the rebuilding of affordable housing in New Orleans, providing at least one hundred new sustainable houses for low-income residents. This organization commissioned signage that conveyed a sense of the strong environmental ethic that has driven their development. This free-standing element provides signage, job site storage, and an identifiable marker indicating progress on the construction site. The structure incorporates salvaged building materials, including bead-board siding that was diverted from the local waste stream. This clear relationship to the material traditions of New Orleans, including the visible reuse of components from a house that was damaged by Hurricane Katrina, was an important intention of the project.
