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.
