There is little doubt in my mind that these new sculptures in New Orleans by artist Douglas Kornfeld will save lives.  Each denotes an evacuation gathering place for anyone who needs to get out quick.   You can see the old FEMA/ CDC versions of meeting point signs below.  I can see how that didn’t really work so well…

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
