Louis Armstrong Park - New Orleans

Louis Armstrong Park was developed with the city of New Orleans to highlight the site’s rich, historic African American heritage and culture. The interpretive plaza celebrates six key contributors, linking them through design elements and the creation of an animated public space. Louis Armstrong Park is a 29.23-acreregional park, housing vital cultural resources such as the Municipal Auditorium, Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts, the National Jazz Historical Park, and Congo Square. The park provides an interpretive “journey” through New Orleans’ history and culture, while creating educational and cultural opportunities for families. As a team member while working at Hamilton Anderson Associates in Detroit, Michigan, Michael Ford was involved with developing the design concept and architectural graphics.
