On the campus in Ann Arbor workers are demolishing a big building called the Frieze Building. The first parts of the building were built almost 100 years ago. First the building was the high school for all the students in Ann Arbor. Later, it was used for classes and offices for the university, and over the years new parts have been built onto it. After it has been torn down, other builders will build a big new dormitory. Maybe there were some good things about the old building, but its rooms wouldn't be good as dormitory rooms.

In the first picture, the work was just getting started, about 5 weeks ago:

Yesterday, the workers had already taken down all the parts that showed in the first picture, and were working on the back of the building:

Today, even more of the building is gone. It will be done very soon. The big trucks haul away the broken up stone, wood, plaster, and metal as the tearing-down proceeds:
