Domino Demolition

The transformation of a building site is raw and beautiful, from a perspective of mass demolition leading to renewal. In this pictorial shot, large swaths of the Domino Sugar Factory are being torn down for a new wave of Waterfront Towers. Urban demolition, excavation and rebirth are part of a constantly evolving process that The City undertakes in order to remake itself and adapt to change. This process oftentimes undercovers the layers of a place, frozen in time. The next day, it may all be gone.

Location of this Urban Transformation site can be found HERE, in Williamsburg, New York.
