“At Risk: 20th-Century New Orleans Urban Design and Architecture” panel discussion will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 7 at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Admission is free to the public.

The experts will discuss issues associated with urban design and the architecture of private buildings and public facilities in New Orleans constructed from the mid-1930s to the mid-1980s. Many of the buildings of this period are either being demolished or are proposed for demolition, which architects say equates to a loss of a half-century of local history and culture.

Panelists include:

- Nicolai Ouroussoff, architecture critic for the New York Times, who will also serve as moderator;

- Arthur Q. Davis, New Orleans architect and former partner in Curtis and Davis architects;

- Jack Davis, trustee for the National Trust for Historic Preservation and vice president of Chicago Metropolis 2020;

- Sally Hernandez-Pinero, former chairwoman of the New York Housing Authority for former New York Mayor David Dinkins;

- J. Ferrel Guillory, director of the department of journalism and mass communications at the University of North Carolina and former New Orleans States-Item writer; and

- William R. Manning, architect and urban planner in New Orleans.

Seating is limited. For more information or to make reservations, call 539-9614.
