dc.description.abstract Deconstruction is more than just a construction practice that has been introduced as an alternate to demolition. The environmental and educational benefits prove the need for sustainable practices such as reusing and recycling materials from old buildings. As construction and demolition wastes represent a substantial percentage of our landfill dumping each year, deconstruction attempts to reduce that amount, even to the point of recycling entire buildings. If architects and engineers are aware of deconstruction within the design process, buildings could be designed for multiple lifetimes. The process of deconstruction is analyzed as an opportunity to be a learning tool for design students and those in construction related fields.
