In this Street Talk, Eve Troeh takes a look at a group that's reinventing the New Orleans cultural icon, the shotgun house.

Tulane School of Architecture and Neighborhood Housing Services have teamed up for the Design-Build project. Their goal: to create contemporary shotguns that keep some of the important elements of their architectural ancestors.
