the way we live



easily one of the craziest architectural images i’ve ever seen.  the above is a building currently undergoing demolition in london, except it’s being demolished from the ground up.  unbelievable.  apparently the p&0 building as it’s known, was built by suspending the floors from a massive beam at the top; consequently, workers must begin demolition from the ground and work their way to the top.   the image is great though, an extraordinary balancing act and a abnormal urban encounter.  the building is being razed to make room for this new structure designed by lord richard rogers.


on a side note, how does one become a lord?

  1. Actually the old building looks more unique that the new one with the floors suspended like that.
