why is it that there is a severe lack of taste in new construction, and lack of respect with old buildings? In the US,of long ago, people knocked down nice houses to build nicer houses. now ...people knock down buildings that conform to traditional architectural style and build ranches, or brutalist buildings. What happened to the golden age? don't think that people don't have enough money to pay for labor costs because wealthy people live in architecturally incomplete homes too. Civic buildings were once pleasant too, but now they build contemporary libraries and city halls.why can't we just restore.... no we have to destroy.
