LeBleu’s 2011 Summer Studio Develops Designs for New Park

LeBleu’s summer 2011 studio studied the history of the emancipated slave settlement know today as Africatown, Alabama.  The U.S. State Department has designated the area as a new park to “preserve and interpret to the public the historic and cultural properties at and near Africatown….in Mobile County.”  Professor LeBleu’s students developed designs emphasizing natural systems analysis as a basis for site planning large-scale community facilities and parks. A Dudley Galley Exhibit of the Africa Town State Park student projects is now on display in Prichard, Alabama.
