Louisiana Architecture: A Handbook on Styles describes and illustrates the architectural styles found in Louisiana including French Creole, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Eastlake, Queen Anne Revival, Colonial Revival, Beaux Arts and Neo-Classical, Bungalow, Hispanic, English, and Art Deco.
The need for a clear statement on Louisiana styles has long been recognized. This publication is a joint project of the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans and the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, serving as an introduction to architectural styles that have shaped Louisiana's landscapes.
The authors, as members of the Division's staff, have at present a total of 45 man-years experience in examining Louisiana's historic buildings. Many of the observations contained in these essays uniquely reflect that experience. In this they have come to know and savor the richness of our architectural heritage.
