Name: Lil Johnson
City: New Orleans, LA
Lafon School
Comments: For health, safety, social and economic reasons use the space for the community and demolish Lafon. New Orleans architecture is brilliant but without a plan, without money, a structure sits. Increasingly the empty structure not only affects the health and safety of the community physically and socially, but it also brings down property values. With the new mixed income Harmony Oaks apartments and home ownership units, it is vital to the well-being of the community to use the space for the community rather than allow the building to continue to rot.
