  1. Deconstructed like a text?

  2. Brian Winters says:

    Too pedestrian to just say “torn down.” If you see a wrecking ball with “derrida” painted on it, watch out.

  3. ithacaan says:

    Old habits die hard, especially when up faced with perceived expedience. The outright demolition of the Vermont was a waste. NML could have done better.

  4. Buildings are often “demolished”.

  5. This comment section might contain the first and last mention of Derrida in Urban Milwaukee.

  6. Virginia Small says:

    Recycling building materials is a great sustainability model. It’s an old ethic that continually seems new. Hats off to Recyclean.

    Jeramey, thanks for laying out the benefits. I wonder if the bulldozer method seems quicker but has few other major benefits.
