Before it builds its future, Zhengzhou, China, is blasting its past.

In a controlled demolition on Aug. 4, the city imploded rows of apartment buildings in a matter of seconds, according to Reuters.

The job required a reported 2.5 tons of dynamite to turn an urban village into what looks like a miniature movie set for a disaster movie. Only it’s real.

Xinhua News Agency’s YouTube channel New China TV wrote in the clip above that 36 buildings went down, with the government hoping to reconstruct the area.

Authorities there also blasted buildings in June.
