As society changes fast and population of recidents grow increasingly, it is a much so hard problem to do a perfect planning of city. Not only can the residents fell comfortable and convenient but also planner ability to take historic relic into account and exhibit a charming appearance of city in a meticulous planning. The big of earth like that it is original; the amount of land like that it is original, and without expanding area of city, it is a hard decision to choose to reserve old buildings or to build new ones.
Did you remember the movie Gladiator which was shoot in Rome which is the capital in Italy ? Are you redolent of Colosseum in the film? Because we have to build a highway, we tear down these ancient cultural heritages. Believed that people may ask that why you are so hardhearted to destroy the assets which underwent trials of time and belonged to all people in the world; further we have to preserve there remains and go a step further to show our descendents the great relic companying with history. Whereas, do people who descry to save ancient architecture think about the needs of lives of locals? People who don’t live in this area don’t appreciate it as a personal favor; however, the residents may also really want to keep these prides of ancestors. This is a very tough problem.
But in modern society, it is usually that building a highway or a shopping male or something else takes apart an ancient cultural heritage with history of one or two hundred years. After ten or two years later, we regret what we did after it was the time that we make decision, and we always thought immediately it was a right and worthy; notwithstanding, it is too late; everything was happening. But this is a social revolution which causes the reason why modern society looks so modern. With ambivalence of such a difficult problem, we have to learn accepting or rejecting or balancing.
How to do? Surly, we must to estimate all aspects we can think about; we will prefer staying these architectures unless the some reason we have to take into account.
After all, every architecture is hided a story or a fragment of history; consequently, these should be preserving.
On the contrary, we prefer pulling down to restoring a un-repairing old relic or to utilizing in a much better useful way because the advances and advantages can be brought to our society.
Such as the Three Gorges Dam of China, these dams made well-known sites and thousand years relic sink into the Changjiang River forever and everyone had pity for it, but government still have to carry out this kind of project.
Without living people, a lot of ancient cultural heritages can’t be handed down. Building the Three Gorges Dam of China can decrease hundreds and thousands of lives; furthermore, we can use the hydroelectric generation efficiently to make people live comfortably.
This is a decision; this is a bet. We can’t conspicuously distinguish the decision we made was wrong or right, but we are sorry for these heritages and hope these dams would demonstrate its power one day.
