Demolition Means Progress

1 2 3 5

This time it is the historic Wilbur Wright School that comes under the Adamo wrecking ball.

Here is the main powerstation smokestack coming down.

Here is the powerstation a week before demolition started.

They should have all the inner volumes and smokes stacks down by the morning, and will probably make short work of the facades later today or tomorrow morning.

The giant jack hammers are still smashing away at what is left of Amelia Earhart school in South West Detroit. I can not imagine living in this neighborhood during this demolition, this building was made of almost pure poured and reinforced concrete. It makes a person wonder what the reasoning is for demolishing something built so strong it looked like it could absorb – and deflect – a 10 megaton blast.
