Hollygrove Growers Market & Farm With Pavilion

Hollygrove Growers Market is located at 8301 Olive St. in the heart of New Orleans. This neighborhood suffered a lot of damage after Hurricane Katrina and needs extensive re-development. This project is an idea about providing the local community with locally-grown, affordable fresh produce. As a result, certification programs in urban agriculture will be produced.
The Hollygrove Pavilion was constructed by students and faculty of Tulane University. The pavilion will stand as an example of environmentally conscious architecture.

A detail in the butterfly like roof that directs rainwater into a cistern for use in the training gardens. Although this was the intention, the collected water is not actually used for what ever reason. Instead water from the main line is used.

On the left hand side this photo you can see a deep green behind the plexi, that is where the cistern is held.
