THE WORLD WAR II MUSEUM OF NEW ORLEANS EXPANDS ITS SPACE
A powerful architecture resembling that of a stronghold, yet able to transform into a scenic space. The new World War II Museum of New Orleans is a compact and precise building, like a military tank, and adaptable like a theatre stage. With an extension of more than 35 thousand square yards, it rises in the Warehouse District, an area of abandoned factories in New Orleans. A colossal work that cost 320 million dollars, equipped with eight pavilions that tell the story of the conflict without triumphalism or rhetoric, through interviews with veterans, footage of the war and personal accounts alongside weapons, planes, ships and interactive maps of battles.
