The Tulane Regional Urban Design Center continues its work in the design education of public officials both in the US and abroad.  After a visit to New Orleans to better understand its urban character, planning and government officials from Jintang, Chengdu, China, have asked the TRUDC to create a master plan for their new town.  Accommodating approximately 150,000 new residents, TRUDC Director Grover Mouton and Project Director Nick Jenisch are working closely with several government agencies to aid in the implementation of the plan, including green infrastructure retrofitting of existing streets, design of all new roadways, siting and design for new civic buildings such as a stadium, library, and cultural center, and application of design guidelines to define and control the urban character of each new-town district.  As in each of its projects, the TRUDC has engaged School of Architecture students, who have contributed critical design and research work to the project.  The plan has been presented onsite to Jintang government leadership and is currently moving from design to engineering and implementation.
