Building Deconstruction Photos

Deconstruction, an alternative to demolition, is the systematic dismantling of commercial and residential buildings. The materials from that building are then evaluated for resale. Deconstruction projects can address the needs of low-income people living in distressed areas and provide a pathway to stable, well-paying employment to those on the fringes of the economy.

These photos are from the 2002 Stanton Terrace deconstruction project in Washington, DC.
