This is the result of the first attempt at utilizing a building destruction pipeline in Houdini back in 2021. Apart from a few texture changes and different parameter settings, the result is quite similar to what the teacher presented at the end of the tutorial. 

However, there are a few things I learned, including:
- Procedurally creating a building, with adjustable amounts of floors and rows 
- Fracturing the different elements of the building using proxies 
- Adding constraints coherent with the different types of materials 
- Using metaballs as a force and controller to control the destruction 
- Using TOP's to create different variations of the simulation and picking the best one 
- Rendering the result in Mantra with materials - Rendering the result in Karma 

Total Working Time (not including Render Times): 26 hours
