Every city has old buildings. Now the question is: how to deal with these old buildings? Some people think they should be pulled down and replaced with new ones, while others believe they should be preserved and protected.
There are a host of reasons why the urban old buildings should be removed. To start with, the old buildings are no longer suitable for people to live in, therefore they should be destroyed and give way to new buildings so that people, especially young people in the cities have more living spaces. Secondly, the old buildings can cause inconveniences for the city dwellers. Since there is not a direct route through the old buildings, people sometimes have to go to and off work by making a long detour around them, and in this way much of their time is wasted. Finally, the old buildings may give rise to safety problems. More than 100 people, for example, are killed or injured each year in my city, just because of the collapse of some ancient buildings.
Yet old buildings - at least some of them - are significant historically and culturally, and hence should be protected from being destroyed for any reason. They deserve to be well-kept and preserved because they carry some important messages about the city or the whole nation. The Summer Palace, for instance, is a perfect reminder of how the imperial family in the Qing Dynasty in feudal China were living and hence has great cultural significance. Such old buildings, if well preserved, can become a tourist spot and attract thousands of visitors from all over the world.
We all need a memory of our past. Many old buildings do have historical and cultural value which tells us who we were. We need to take good care of these buildings and keep them as long as possible so that they can tell the stories of the city or the nation to the future generation. Of course, those old buildings with little value ought to be pulled down, especially when they pose safety problems to people.(346 words)
