A Modern Proposal :: The Roots of Music Center at Phillis Wheatley

A University of Virginia Proposal for the Renovation and Adaptive Reuse of the Phillis Wheatley Elementary School.

DOCOMOMO US/Louisiana is proud to stand with The Roots of Music and support their vision of the renovation and adaptive re-use of the Phillis Wheatley School as the new headquarters for their nationally acclaimed youth music program.  This proposal for the Roots of Music Center at Phillis Wheatley honors the continued legacies of educational innovation and preservation in New Orleans. Join us in supporting this synthesis of visionary architecture and musical education in the heart of the Treme.

Please email your support for this proposal to Recovery School District Superintendent John White and Mayor Mitchell Landrieu. This is our last chance to dance!
