Winkler Hall Disappears into Dust PDF Print

They said it would take 12 seconds, 12 seconds of carefully timed explosions, and a few more seconds for Winkler Hall on the ASU campus to fall early Sunday morning.  The 40-year old dorm was taken down as renovation costs compared to a number of economic factors made it impractical to save, so now ASU officials have to decide how to best utilize the space created.  The front section of the former 11-story dorm will be taken down using more conventional methods while the tons of rubble created by the blast are cleared over the next few weeks. Was it loud?  Just ask anyone who tried to sleep through it.
