Public Interest Design and Education

As the Tulane School of Architecture’s community design center, Small Center brings together creative makers and doers working for a better city. We advance community-driven ideas through collaboration, design education and scrappy problem-solving.

We work with a variety of non-profit organizations and community groups to provide design services to communities who are consistently underserved by our field.
