Ray Croft is an architectural designer who is trying to modernize old navy barracks located in New Orleans. Instead of just leaving these spaces to grow old, he's proposing a few changes that will make the area part of the community.
Moreover, the soil that's in the navy barracks is slightly toxic, so making these upgrades would also be done for ecological reasons. The project would plant various species to help cleanse the soil, and rejuvenate the landscape surrounding the area. Considering that right now the space is mostly concrete, these changes would be much welcomed by the people in the area. Plus, the eco-friendly initiatives would be great for the environment for everyone around the world.
