    雖然全世界絕大部分的展會之會館(會場),在搭建之時的本意都不是要讓它們永續存在,但有些還是被保存了下來。

    be made to last = 做來要用很久久的

    例: This fort is made to last 這惡靈堡壘做得好堅固啊!

    be NOT made to last 就是相反的意思

    It means that the purpose for most of thepavilions is not meant to be kept for good, but there are few still there. 意指有些會場原先的規劃目的並不是想讓它們永久留在那!
