Name: Una Anderson
City: New Orleans, LA
Lafon School Building
Comments: This building has been radically modified since its original construction and should not be preserved in any false homage to modernist architecture. It is currently blighting the middle of mixed income redevelopment and will be an eyesore and an impediment to renting the apartments on this site if left to stand. There are other ways to recognize the history of the site; frankly, this building is not the most important element of the site's history. Please tear down this blighted building!
