Process: Demolition & Details

 

 

 

When you demo a house,

you get a glimpse of the building’s past.

Nothing is hidden with finishes anymore and all their secrets are exposed.

It is only in this moment of demolition when a building is truly transparent.

And, soon, these beautiful secrets are to be covered again 

only to wait for another generation to be rediscover.

 

 

 

 

 

“What will this place require us to do?
Permit us to do?
Help us to do?”
-Wendell Berry, Farmer and Poet
