Under Construction

Demolition in Minamisanriku


Takano Hiroyuki


This is a record of the work to dismantle the buildings that couldn't be use anymore caused by the tsunami damage. Demolition work is not just a huge wreck, but it also required to separate the work between handworks and superlative techniques used by heavy equipment operators; for safety and efficiency. Please pay close attention to the echo of the destroying concrete and the fine movement of heavy equipment.
