Wheatley School
Comments: After studying architecture for the last four years, I moved down to New Orleans in June and was amazed to see the Wheatley School, abandoned and falling-apart, yet still striking as perhaps the most beautiful school building I have ever seen. It would be an utter tragedy to see such a wonderful design torn down, and the loss of an opportunity to restore an irreplaceable and historic piece of the city as well.
