LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The demolition of three buildings on the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s campus will make way for new green space next to the new Student Union and Cypress Lake.

Wayne Domingue, of Architects Southwest, tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1faI9Cf ) the plan is to create a gathering space for students while enhancing the view of the Student Union and the lake.

The Student Union reopened in January following a $40 million expansion and renovation funded by student fees. Services offered at the buildings set for demolition - Guillory, Lafayette and Vermilion halls - were relocated.

Architects Southwest planned and designed the Student Union revamp. It will assist the university with the green space project, which is in the early design phase.

Work crews started this week. The demolition is expected to take several days.
