10 Years 10 Stories
(August 1, 2015)
Lettermans is a major sponsor and contributor to an exhibit developed by AIA New Orleans, titled “10Years10Stories” which highlights the critical roles that architects have played in the recovery and renaissance of the city over the last decade. Working with a dedicated committee of architects, Lettermans created signage, graphics and fabricated the entire exhibit. The result is a collective memory showcasing the power of architecture to effect change. Committee chair Mary Gilmore, AIA, called it “an inspiration and calling to the next generation of leaders shaping the built environment.”
