Louisiana National Guard Museum
New Orleans, LA


The new Louisiana National Guard Museum was designed in keeping with the aesthetic of the historic Jackson Barracks campus. A military museum exhibit area, the official historic archive and library for the Louisiana National Guard, and a 300 seat multimedia theater all surround and open onto a central courtyard. Also included are state-of-the-art historic exhibit restoration facilities, exhibit storage, and administrative offices. The facility was designed using sustainable materials & high efficiency building systems, while the use of clerestory windows and orientation of fenestration allow for diffused daylighting in the interior spaces.
