  • The Most Oddly Satisfying Building Demolition Video In The World - Amazing Implosions Explosion

    The Most Oddly Satisfying Building Demolition Video In The World - Amazing Implosions Explosion Compilation 2017 Demolition is the tearing down of buildings and other man-made structures. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use purposes. For small buildings, such as houses, that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process. The building is pulled down either manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment: elevated work platforms, cranes, excavators or bulldozers. Larger buildings may require the use of a wrecking ball, a heavy weight on a cable that is swung by a crane into the side of the buildings. Wrecking balls are especially effective against masonr...

  • Drone footage captures brutalist Robin Hood Gardens ahead of imminent demolition

    This drone footage shot by Dezeen surveys the ill-fated brutalist housing estate Robin Hood Gardens, designed by architects Alison and Peter Smithson, which is set to be demolished in the coming weeks. Designed by the Smithsons during the 1960s and completed in 1972, Robin Hood Gardens in Poplar, east London, is the only housing estate by the pair that came to fruition. It is considered exemplary of new brutalism, an architectural style gaining its name from the French béton-brut, or raw concrete, used to form the structures. The estate is about to be demolished to make way for a suite of new housing blocks, despite years of campaigning to have it heritage listed. The first block could be razed any day now, while the second will be pulled down later. Read more on Dezeen: https://www.de...

It has only been well over a century since skyscrapers first made their appearance in the late nineteenth century, complete with photos of the construction that alarmingly include men eating their lunch thousands of feet into the air with nothing to hang on to should they fall. Architecture requires some of the most brilliant minds in the world today, as complex designs have to have a way to stay standing. If you look at buildings from the earlier times, they looked like square boxes with some windows. But the innovation of design has challenged architects to be more creative and productive in their designs. From buildings to bridges, people want more aesthetics than functionality these days. However, functionality is crucial because it can make the difference between life and death. If a student makes an error on their test, the worst thing that will happen is that they get a bad grade. If an artist messes up on a piece, the worst thing that will happen is that there was time lost and wasted. But if an architect makes an error, then there is more devastation and more at risk. If an architect writes up plans that are flawed, and those plans are published around the world, then there is potential for worldwide catastrophe. When it all comes down to it, architectural failures can be devastating and lives can be lost at epic proportions. In this video are ten of the biggest architecture failures that have ever occurred around the world. Not only did these fails result in monetary loss, but also resulted in catastrophic damage to the people involved that involved PTSD and death. From the collapse of bridges to the downfall of some of the mightiest buildings to have ever existed, these failures are a grim reminder that we are still not perfect and have a lot of work to do in terms of how much we can create on our own. Sometimes loss of life isn’t the only major issue when it comes to architecture failures. Sometimes it’s something as simple as color of the building. Take the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Vdara Hotel and Spa. The buildings are both very shiny and reflect the sun, thus unintentionally creating a massive heat ray that moves as the Earth moves around the sun. People have actually reported their hair getting singe and plastic melting from the rays coming off of the buildings. Perhaps that’s why we don’t see many silver buildings anymore? The entries in this video are both tragic and humorous. As the art of architecture continues to evolve and change, we will likely see more failures come as experimentation in the building world continues to progress. We are learning with each building how to create something bigger and better, along with making sure that the building is safe and not put together with paperclips, glue, and maybe a few thumbtacks.

How would you like to see Beyond Misinformation on library shelves all over the U.S.? We sure as heck would! That’s why today we are kicking off our campaign to land Beyond Misinformation — the upcoming paperback book version — in the 2,000 largest library systems across the country (which, combined, serve 84% of the U.S. population). Not every library system will accept our book — some will sell the copy they receive and others will give it away (no harm done in either case!) — but about half of them are likely to add it to their shelves. This strategy has been tested and proven by an AE911Truth supporter who’s had great success getting several hundred libraries to include our centerpiece documentary film, 9/11: Explosive EvidenceExperts Speak Out, in their collections. Once a library system has accepted the book, we will follow up with more copies so that every branch in that system has one. Within six months, thousands of libraries around the country will be carrying Beyond Misinformation — and thousands upon thousands of people will be reading it! Just Fifteen Bucks a Book For every $15 we raise, we’ll be able to print and mail one book to another library system. So we’re asking you to make a modest contribution of $15 for every book that you’d like to “donate.” In other words, for every 15 dollars you chip in ($15, $30, $45, $60, etc.), you will be funding an additional book. Our goal is to raise enough funds for 2,000 books by November 1st! DONATE HERE: http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=QUEerQRLzHI4hwssRqSoKXolyVbCXaSc

You won't believe the architectural fails that we have on this list. From skyscrapers that melt cars and dangerous bridges breaking. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 6 Lotus Riverside Complex The Lotus Riverside was a residential apartment complex in Shanghai. It’s made up of eleven 13-story rectangular buildings. One fateful morning in June 2009, one of the buildings toppled completely over on its side. It fell straight over and just barely missed a nearby building. The way they are shaped and constructed, if it had hit, it would have created the world’s most destructive domino effect. The thing that caused this wasn’t an architectural glitch in the building but rather the foundation it was built on. Right below the building, workers were excavating earth to create an underground garage. The soil was dumped into a landfill near a creek which caused the water to seep into the ground. All of this combined turned the foundation beneath the complex to mud, leading to the collapse. # 5 Ray and Maria Stata Center The Ray and Maria Stata Center is an academic complex at MIT that was designed by Frank Gehry. It was opened in 2004 and received lots of positive attention for its unique and mind-bending angles and structural facades. However, the building has since been riddled with so many problems that MIT has sued Frank Gehry’s firm for it. The $300 million dollar building had drainage issues that caused cracks in walls, mold grew on the brick exterior, and huge dangerous icicle daggers hang from the roof. The repairs cost the school more than $1.5 million dollars. # 4 Tropicana Field Stadium The Tropicana Field is home to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Major League Baseball Team based in St Petersburg, Florida. The problem with the field isn’t the actual field, but what hangs above it. The ceiling has four catwalks and several lights hanging down that, as you can imagine, get in the way of baseballs that are hit into the air. In case you don’t know, a major facet of baseball is trying to hit the ball as high and as far as possible so you can potentially, hit a homerun. The structures at the stadium often get in the way of that and will even block potential home run balls. Sometimes a light will get hit and cause a dangerous rain of super hot glass to fall into the field. Maybe the next time you design a baseball stadium, consider not building a roof. # 3 Walkie Talkie Skyscrapers The Walkie Talkie Skyscraper in London was an architectural novel, acclaimed for its slightly concave facade and towering height. However, there was something else about it that became much more infamous: it’s a 525 feet tall heat ray. The concave shape of the building focuses and reflects sun rays in just a way that it magnifies them and burns everything on the street around it. The heat rays reflecting off the building have been found to fry doorways, shatter tiles, and heat the ground up to 243 degrees Fahrenheit. It even melted cars down to their body frames. # 2 Sampoong Department Store The Sampoong Department Store was initially meant to be a four-floor office building but was later converted into a department store. To do this, they, of course, removed support columns of elevators and relocated an air conditioning unit to the roof. Obviously, the result was not good. The structural instability caused the building to completely collapse in 1995, trapping 1500 people and killing 502. # 1 Skyscraper on Stilts When an architect named William LeMessurier wanted to build a skyscraper in the 1970s, his ideal construction site was occupied by a Lutheran church that was completely unwilling to move. So instead of demolishing the church, he decided to build the skyscraper in the air right above the church. The Citigroup Center tower is a 59 story building that has a foundation made of stilts, so the building is right above the church. However, as you might think, a skyscraper on stilts can have some pretty dangerous structural problems if you’re not careful. The whole building was made with bolted joints rather than welded joints, which made it super susceptible to being toppled by a strong enough storm. So did Citigroup warn everyone in the area that the biggest building on the block could come crashing down at any moment? No, they just secretly welded all the joints together and prayed to all their Gods that it wouldn’t come crashing down before then. If it had come down, it could have ended the lives of around 200,000 people.

The Most Oddly Satisfying Building Demolition Video In The World - Amazing Implosions Explosion Compilation 2017 Demolition is the tearing down of buildings and other man-made structures. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use purposes. For small buildings, such as houses, that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process. The building is pulled down either manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment: elevated work platforms, cranes, excavators or bulldozers. Larger buildings may require the use of a wrecking ball, a heavy weight on a cable that is swung by a crane into the side of the buildings. Wrecking balls are especially effective against masonry, but are less easily controlled and often less efficient than other methods. Newer methods may use rotational hydraulic shears and silenced rock-breakers attached to excavators to cut or break through wood, steel, and concrete. The use of shears is especially common when flame cutting would be dangerous #MostSatisfyingVideo #SatisfyingVideo #PeopleAreAwesome #Satisfying #OddlySatisfying #fastworkers #Fastest #Amazing

This drone footage shot by Dezeen surveys the ill-fated brutalist housing estate Robin Hood Gardens, designed by architects Alison and Peter Smithson, which is set to be demolished in the coming weeks. Designed by the Smithsons during the 1960s and completed in 1972, Robin Hood Gardens in Poplar, east London, is the only housing estate by the pair that came to fruition. It is considered exemplary of new brutalism, an architectural style gaining its name from the French béton-brut, or raw concrete, used to form the structures. The estate is about to be demolished to make way for a suite of new housing blocks, despite years of campaigning to have it heritage listed. The first block could be razed any day now, while the second will be pulled down later.

After decades of controversy, Alison and Peter Smithson’s monumental housing estate in Poplar, East London, is finally being emptied of tenants in preparation for its demolition. The blocks will eventually be replaced by a quiver of anodyne towers designed by AEDAS. The AR’s History Editor Tom Wilkinson takes a final look at this landmark of Brutalism, tracing the context of its creation, the vagaries of its reputation, and exploring the unloved, but not unlovely spaces around it, concluding that Robin Hood Gardens is a reminder of architecture’s potential in an age of austerity.
