Reconstruire après une catastrophe : la Nouvelle-Orléans après l’ouragan Katrina et les villes européennes après les bombardements1
After Hurricane Katrina badly damaged the city of New Orleans in August, 2005, city residents, journalists, and architects and planners from all over the United States quickly focused on the reconstruction of the city. Many people believed this natural catastrophe was similar to cities bombed during World War II, and like many postwar planners, they welcomed an opportunity to build a new and better city. There were immediate calls for a new Marshall Plan to provide funding by the federal government. This essay examines both similarities and differences between rebuilding Germany’s bombed cities after 1945 and rebuilding New Orleans. It explores in detail different approaches taken to finance reconstruction, various proposals produced by planners, and the nature of the planning process.
