Episode 1.5: Gallier House

We’re heading down south to the Crescent City, where we’ll take a closer look at a father-son pair of architects who had a hand in shaping some of New Orlean’s most iconic buildings including the French Quarter’s Pontalba Buildings. Gallier Jr.’s home also happens to be one of the best preserved examples of New Orleans style in the Vieux Carre, and is now a house museum open to the public. It’s a little bit of Big Easy history, a little bit of post-fire architecture, and a lot of different interpretations of what Chippendale could mean.


Go here to see James Gallier Sr. and James Gallier Jr.
