Louisana State Museum
and Sports Hall of Fame
Located in Natchitoches, the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase, and set on the banks of the Cane River Lake, this project is inspired by the riverfront setting, early sustainable practices, and the 17th century bousillage building technique brought to the region by French settlers.
The Museum’s interior reflects the region’s fluvial geomorpology — the transformation of the landscape from centuries of carving by the meandering river. Sculpted from 1,100 unique cast stone panels, the interior seamlessly integrates building systems and serves as a canvas for exhibitions and films.
