Building Demolition

Buildings have lives.  Each building has a different life span.  Some, like the Pantheon, last for millennia.  Others, only a few years or decades.  This community is dedicated to honoring the lives of buildings that are no longer with us.  From their inception to their destruction all are welcome to share their memories of these structures, or their final moments.
