Project Description: While teaching as an adjunct professor at tulane university, Matt Decotiis, along with emily taylor and doug harmon, led the small center design/build studio: parisite. over the course of two semesters more than 20 students came together to help design and build a public entrance for new orleans' first official skatepark. the entrance provided skateable benches, rails and walls, and strategically placed raingardens underneath the 610 overpass to help mitigate flooding around the skate park. the project received a 2016 social economic environmental design award with the jury commenting: "it is a creative blending of recreation with environmental green infrastructure. The park makes use of the “dead space” under highway to be an asset for the community. This project is a manageable scale to work on with immediate and measurable results."
