Some people think that too much money is spent on repairing old buildings,instead of repairing old buildings,that money should be spent on knocking down old buildings and building new ones .To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Buildings are a part of

instead
of spending money on renovating old buildings

Accept space
.
I strongly disagree with the above statement evidencing in
this
essay as to why it is important to restore buildings in their original form.
Firstly
,
Accept space
,
Buildings have for long served mankind with a variety of purposes ranging from museums to historical monuments and from iconic hotels to corporate houses
.
Accept space
.
Demolishing these iconic and memorable buildings to make way for new ones will demean their intrinsic value
.
Accept space
.
Secondly
,
Accept space
,
age old buildings have been used by governments across the world to showcase rich cultural diversity thereby promoting tourism
.
Accept space
.
Dismantling them will surely serve a huge blow to
this
heritage
.
Accept space
.
Henceforth, it makes for a compelling case to restore these buildings in their original condition. Moving on to the alternate school of thought
,
Accept space
,
it is clear that construction of new buildings by razing old ones brings with it air pollutants into the environment
.
Accept space
.
A recent research conducted by
national green tribunal
Suggestion
a national green tribunal
has provided for the fact that dust caused
as a result
of construction activities is
major source
Suggestion
a major source
of air pollution accounting for 1 million deaths worldwide.
Therefore
,
Accept space

it becomes important to minimise construction of buildings and
instead
maintain the old structures by timely renovations. In conclusion
,
Accept space
,
although
many people advocate to replace old buildings with new modern architectural design buildings still the practice of renovating and resurrecting old ones has many benefits over building new structures in their place.
