About Us

The New Urban Guild is a group of architects and designers who do much of their work in New Urbanist places. The Guild hosted the Katrina Cottage initiative in the beginning, and now hosts the follow-on Project:SmartDwelling. The Guild Foundation, which is the non-profit sister organization to the Guild, hosts the Original Green initiative. Here’s the mission and history of the Katrina Cottages initiative, the first prototype cottages built and some of their successors, the key people involved in the initiative, the lessons we learned, how to contact us, and our privacy policy, should you decide to subscribe to news updates.
