Well, not the post-modern kind of deconstruction. Unconstruction? Demolish might be too harsh, since the pavilions and other buildings are being taken apart brick by brick and beam by beam. It’s a bit sad to see the area going down, but at least it appears that many of the resources put into the construction are, hopefully, going to be recycled. I last visited the area several weeks ago and here are a few photos of the site.
Hauling away the debris. There’s rubble scattered everywhere.
Looking through the fence toward the aquarium at some of the debris.
Near the same area, but past the aquarium, are the remains of the Local Governments Pavilion. There are lots of beams being stacked up, so I assume they’re going to be recycled for other uses.
Here’s a shot looking down the Ocean Plaza Walkway toward the far end of the site at the corporate pavilions area. Most of them have been torn down by now.
Here’s a closer look at the Samsung Pavilion going down.
And the International Organizations and NGO Pavilion skeleton.
Down comes the Kids’ Fun Lab, near the railway terminal entrance.
Finally, for now, the Climate and Environment Pavilion, mostly gone.
I plan on going down to the area this coming weekend, so I’m sure there will be more drastic changes to shoot. I’ll put the photos up here, of course.
