That's a possible alternative interpretation, but I think the version in the standard rules is more "tear it down and have nothing in its place."

I should note, by the way, that I'm not a WoD fan as such, but more a Mage fan; I see Mage as enabling the kind of freeform improvisation that's a big appeal of the supers genre for me. Ironically, White Wolf seems to have worked steadily from edition to edition to tone down that aspect of Mage, and make it more WoDy.
