Fletcher Hall, under construction.
Classic example of a "Waffle" slab. The building has several different ways to form columns ( square, rectangular, Sonotubes and Symons forms) to use as teaching tool for the students.
ETA: the guy who had these says he has about 20 more, plus renderings, presentation drawings, etc., so there will be more forthcoming shortly.
Thanks for the pics, posts and insights.
Another view of a recently completed Cajun Field. Note that UMC not built yet, or much else along N. College/Bertrand. But Congress St seems to be a 4-lane road now.
A map of (1971-72) Lafayette to go with the pic.
1. Cajun Field is represented by a red star.
2. Congress street ends just past LHS. I remember having to then take a left on Crawford, making your way through that neighborhood, then turn left again onto Churchhill, ending up at the old Binkham Lincoln-Mercury dealership on Johnston.
3. S. College ends at Johnston street (where the original, best Burger Chef used to be), so there isn't a N. College, etc.
4. Although the growth in south Lft has started, it seems to end around camellia Blvd, lol.
Again, it's just pretty amazing to be reminded of the amazing growth we've experienced here. I would say that it now ends at E Broussard rd, but it's pretty developed all the way to Maurice.
LaCajuns_fan, what is the significance of the areas highlighted in the light purple compared to the ones in light red/pink. I'm thinking age? I notice much of the "Upper Lafayette" that is visible plus downtown, campus, Freetown, Saints streets, older Oaklawn subdivision is all the pinkish/light red color.

You can still get the quad maps at Louisiana Digital Reproductions on University across from the St. John Cemetery.
From the Barras Architectural firm website, an early version of Fletcher Hall. Very close to the completed product, but not quite.
