Tokyo, Japan is famous for being one of most densely populated cities in the world. Naturally, the skyline is just as tightly packed with high-rise buildings.
So what does an architect do when he has to tear down a building? Conventional demolitions cause too many adverse side effects, such as pollution and damage to near by buildings.
But Japan is also famous for their out-of-the-box, creative thinking. To solve the demolition problem, one Japanese company has introduced a new form of demolition with none of the smoke, noise, or explosions.
They simply tear the building down one floor at a time from the inside. This new report by Reuters covering the new Japanese demolition technique was posted by MrNewsFunny and has gone viral, amassing over 650,000 hits.
