Designed as a community front porch, the courtyard at Liberty Bank Building stores rainwater and provides residents with a relaxing way to come and go each day. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the site as home of the first black-owned bank west of the Mississippi, opened in 1968. The “history” portal marks the point of entry, built with bricks and safety-deposit box number plates that were salvaged from the original bank building. Drum-shaped benches by artist Esther Ervin are inspired by the significance of drums in African culture, often used in weddings, funerals and other special events. Photo: @k7scott

A water runnel meanders through the new Louisiana Children’s Museum landscape and opens up to the "Hummock Hop”—a place for jumping, splashing and tracking the footprints of wild marsh animals. Wild animals have already moved into the new marsh and we look forward to children exploring these spaces when the new museum opens August 31! Photo: Christian Runge
