This December, downtown New Orleans will showcase DesCours, a week-long, contemporary architecture and art event that explores the latest in design and technology with new media and interactive art installations. A competitive review of proposals from internationally recognized architects and artists will bring fourteen distinct installations to the city, that nightly transform hidden spaces across the French Quarter and Central Business District.

During the week of December 7-13, this free, public event invites locals and visitors to view New Orleans historical spaces in a new way. The private courtyards, unique building lobbies, and other hidden spaces of interest will be activated with an eclectic variety of site responsive installations to encourage patrons to redefine the experience of art and place. The installations will be paired with nightly changing entertainment by musicians and a total of three public parties will be held to commemorate the start, midpoint, and end of the event.
