Deconstruction has a sense in architecture.
(It is already a fact in many temporary structures.)
Often a building becomes obsolescent many years before it comes to an advanced state of deterioration and at the end of its service life.
If, in the original design, we could anticipate and provide more abilities to recover the materials and components, then, deconstucting a building instead of demolition when it becomes obsolete would be a good way to reuse materials and another step for a sustainable environment.
