This event is part of the Archtober’s virtual Travel To series. Travel To seeks to highlight iconic architecture and historically significant sites across the United States. Join us as curators, preservationists, historians (and more!) bring these places and spaces alive in the comfort of your home.
Join us for a virtual tour of the Hotel Peter and Paul in New Orleans, LA with developer Nathalie Jordi and the Preservation Resource Center. Hotel Peter and Paul was the result of a four-year restoration of the former Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic church and school. The site is steeped in history, from the splendid Henry Howard-designed buildings to the school’s appearance in A Confederacy of Dunces, and its author’s (possibly apocryphal) three-person funeral in the church.
The former school house, rectory, church and convent have each been carefully restored and repurposed for new congregants. Each building has its own inspiration and narrative, with the resulting restoration ensuring that no two guest rooms are exactly alike.
This event is free! But please consider a supporting Archtober, NYC’s annual architecture and design month celebrating the rich cultural and architectural history of the city.
