    Event Description:
    Design after Disaster: Reimagining the Mississippi Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina

    Hurricane Katrina struck Mississippi and Louisiana on August 29, 2005. Just six weeks after the storm, more than 100 architects and urbanists gathered in a battered casino to re-imagine the future of all eleven major towns and cities on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This planning session, knows as the Mississippi Renewal Forum, not only heavily influenced the redevelopment of the Coast but also was a pivotal event in the history of the design movement known as New Urbanism.

    Raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Christopher L. Cosper is an associate professor in the Architecture and Facility Management Program at Ferris State University. Cosper holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Mississippi State University (1994), and he is the first graduate of the Harvard GSD Master of Design Studies program to concentrate in Critical Conservation (2012).
