A STUDIO IN THE WOODS

Visitor Experience

A Studio in the Woods is an artist‘s retreat center and a program of Tulane University where the highest priority is to create a place of investigation and discovery. The Stewards Cottage slips quietly into the woods in a previously disturbed area of the site and was designed to become a “net zero energy use” structure with the addition of future solar energy generation. The Writer’s Cabin enhances the micro-environment of the forest in response to the changes wrought by Hurricane Katrina. Supplied with basic provisions for sleeping and working, the cottage provides a home for a literary artist engaged in intimate interaction with the natural world.
