Good article. I can’t understand why in this day and age we still think demolishing heritage buildings is a sign of progress. Aside from the value they bring to creating a sense of place, there is mounting evidence about the economic value of heritage (e.g. Maybe it’s something to do with the whole disposable culture we have created because it can’t be just a matter of taste – I have yet to meet anyone who sees beauty in a new Wal-Mart. It seems to boil down to “new is better” period – even if that “new” is a freshly paved parking lot.
