Unusual Demolition

The 1965 P&O building in London is being demolished from the bottom up!

That's because of the way it was built: Each of the 15 floors is suspended from beams at the top of the building. The beams are supported by the concrete core of the building.

I wonder if this would be a good design for California earthquakes?

Thanks Gizmodo
