Interesting ideas by the Dutch. Click on the photo gallery. The city cannot be rebuilt as before. There will be storms much stronger than Katrina.

Building New Orleans 2.0

Hurricane Katrina left a devastated New Orleans in its wake. But a new architectural exhibit has come up with some ideas for the Big Easy's new look. Who's behind the project? The Dutch of course.
As if trying to make up for not being there to hold back the waters which flooded the Big Easy following Hurricane Katrina, the Dutch are now making amends. A new exhibit called "Newer Orleans, a Shared Space" is once again combining Dutch and American forces with inspired suggestions for how to rebuild the soggy Crescent City. After all, with much of their country lying below sea level and kept alive by an ingenious system of dikes and canals, the Dutch know what their talking about.

I'd just like to see them take all that money they are spending on Mardi Gras to restore homes and lives to those that were so devastated by Katrina.

@detano inipo,
This post-storm project is rather symbolic.

The devastation of the hurricane left residents and leaders and advisors of New Orleans the opportunity to rebuild the area with ecologically creative restoration procedures designed to balance profit with environmental soundness.

Given that New Orleans is an intriguing culture mix in America (a special mix of French, Haitian, Native-American, and southern American peoples among others), we can imagine that restoring New Orleans' culturally rich restaurants and parks can be nicely wed to ecological consciousness in the modern age that artistically celebrates environment-revolution comic book avatars such as Poison Ivy (a haunting superwoman who wields ecological toxins as psychiatry weapons).

America is the nation of surprisingly healthy convenience fast food companies such as White Castle and Burger King, so the Rebuild New Orleans project will always represent democratic opportunity and reflect the capitalist marketability of migration-coloring Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Coming to America" (1988).
