The Tidy Pile of Rubble

The 47-story tower was converted into a pile of rubble lying almost entirely within its footprint.

The rubble pile was less than 3 stories high.

The fall visibly damaged only one adjacent building.


Taking a building down into its footprint is the objective of controlled demolition.

It requires shattering all columns at ground level simultaneously, then marching the charge detonations up the building as it falls.
