To answer the title question: it sure is! However, this week isn’t revolving only around demolition. If you haven’t had the chance to keep up with the latest news, then here’s the chance. After the inauguration of Donald Trump on 20th of January, he has started putting in motion many plans… Including some infamous ones that none of us really thought of becoming real.
One of such plans was the Mexican border wall that was a central part of Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign. It is not just a far fetched idea but a real plan – Mr. Trump has actually said to order the border wall as the first step in the series of actions towards “strengthening” the national security.
That’s not where it ends though – Mr. Trump is tackling also legal immigrants and has claimed to enhance the screening process. It is clear that everything is being done in order to close all doors and build the “Great Wall of America”. Only time can show us where it all leads.

Now on a bit brighter side – and we did promise demolition – 19 buildings, 10 seconds, 15 hectares and more than 5 tons of explosives. We are talking about a massive demolition project that took place in Hankou, Hubei province.
Luckily for you, we don’t need to imagine what this masterpiece looks like. South China Morning Post is sharing wonderful footage of the demolition and we can honestly say, it’s so beautiful it can make a grown man cry.

So now we’ve covered a bit of demolition, a bit of crazy plans – what about some real-life projects? We’ve got you two words: rotating homes. It’s as much sci-fi like as it is crazily attractive and the best part is, these modern homes are becoming reality. The key point behind these homes is their slight rotating nature, hence they “follow the sun” and open a possibility for a much more sustainable living place.
