Here a quick update on the progress of the Teatro Princesa demolition. I never knew heavy machinery could be so cute. Mampf!

Did you know Valencia has its own breed of dog?

Deconstruction on Teatro Princesa

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

With an almost 4 month delay they have finally started the deconstruction of Teatro Princesa, which was destroyed in a fire earlier this year. Making great use of the chaos, the city has turned Calle Murillo into Construction Nightmare Ground Zero — this week, they started tearing up the street for the fourth time. Of course, we understand that in the long term, it’s better to have repaired streets, but why exactly is it necessary to tear up, then pave over, then tear up, then pave over, tear up, pave over and NOW TEAR UP THE STREET AGAIN?! Within the time frame of about 3 months?! Man! If we could, we’d move out tomorrow!

Anyway, we heard that the crews claimed that the deconstruction of the theater would take about 2 days, starting Friday, finishing Sunday. My guess is it will take at least a month. Just look at this mess!

We live in a building right next to the Teatro (literally: I could reach out and touch it), and the city has provided us absolutely zero information as to the schedule of deconstruction, let alone what risks we run by staying in our apartment. All the information we’ve gotten is from asking neighbors, and the workers on the ground.

Oh well, at least we got some neat pictures out of it:
