Restoration, Recycling and Remembering

I thought of the state of the world, the excess in which we live: old structures are abandoned or torn down; new ones are put up unnecessarily.

What would happen if we could take the lumber, steel, metals, etc. and make beauty out of the old steel mills, out of the hurricane damaged structures and even out of the hidden places in our minds. Could we rearrange them?
