Building Stands Taller

Look at this: A historic brick temple raised up two stories high on scaffolding. Just imagine the strength and care that went into this feat of engineering! The Provo (Utah) Tabernacle burned in 2010, and although the interior is gone, the brick facade survived. To restore the building, it has been raised up so that a two-floor foundation basement can be built underneath it. Read about the project and see more pictures at Gizmodo. Link

Sorry to jump into a correction right away, I work for one of the companies involved with this amazing project. The temple itself was not raised, it was braced and the soil was excavated right out from underneath. IMHO, a completely off-the-charts awesome creative idea, and a beautiful structure worth preserving.
