Too much money spent on looking after and repairing old buildings. Some people think we should knock old buildings down and built new modern ones. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Most civilizations around the world have at least some, or possibly many, monuments such as temples, churches and houses around their cities, villages and surrounding areas which have historical value and significance. In my opinion, it is very important to preserve these, but this does not mean progress should stop.
Maintaining certain old relics is important for several reasons. Firstly, these structures provide an insight into the cultures, showing us how people many centuries ago lived their lives. Without them, we could only learn by books, and it would undoubtedly be a shame if this were the only way to see them. Many of these buildings are also nothing short of spectacular. Take the many religious buildings for example such as churches and temples that we see around the world. Not only this, but on a more practical level, many of these buildings provide economical growth to a country as many tourists visit them in great numbers.
However, this certainly does not mean that modernization should be discouraged. I believe that old buildings can be protected in tandem with progress. For example, in many circumstances we see old historic buildings being renovated whist maintaining their original character, and used for modern purposes. Also, in no way does history hinder progress, and in fact it is the opposite. By studying and learning about our history, we understand more about the world we live in, and this helps us to build a better future.
To conclude, I believe that it is very important to protect and preserve old buildings as we can learn about our history as can others from other countries, but meanwhile, the steps to the future should never be held back.
