The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) Forum is an adaptive reuse of an 1830s rail depot, 1850s warehouse and existing infill structure into a new expansion for the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. The facility houses an expanded culinary arts department, science labs and academic studio classrooms. In addition to the educational portion of the project, there is a public café and tenant space for lease. The blending of public elements into an educational facility focused on creativity provides moments for students to present their art to the community. Williams Architects is proud to have transformed this basic warehouse into an interactive space that is in keeping with NOCCA, a vital and inspiring institution.
