Many old buildings are protected by law because they are part of a nation's history. However, some people think old buildings should be knocked down to make way for new ones because people need houses and offices. How important is it to maintain old buildings? Should history stand in the way of progress?

Undeniably, industrialization has been having a great influence on
people
’s lives. Among them, it affects the existence of ancient
buildings
. While some
people
believe the government should destroy or replace them with new modern
buildings
, I am in favour of the view that old
buildings
should be preserved for economic purposes and historical understanding. There are many reasons why some
people
think that old
buildings
need to be demolished.
Firstly
, the rapid growth of the population makes
people
not have enough land to live, so the removal of old
buildings
is a proposed solution.
In addition
, ancient
buildings
are
also
said to be less aesthetic when appearing on modern streets today. That’s why there is a view that those
buildings
should be removed.
On the other hand
, I strongly argue that old
buildings
should be maintained. The ancient architecture of a city is a priceless asset, a kind of symbol, a historical period that captures the cultural and spiritual wisdom of that city. The preservation of ancient architecture makes
people
able to expand their understanding of history, thereby making them more proud of their
country
.
Secondly
, the
country
’s tourism industry develops

It seems that thank may not agree in number with other words in this phrase.

to the
people
’s love of discovery, especially foreigners, about history. These
buildings
attract tourists,
therefore
it creates a great source of income for the
country
. The above reasons have clearly confirmed the importance of preserving historical sites in the development of the
country
. In conclusion, while some
people
believe old
buildings
should be knocked down for the growth of the city, I am in the opinion that it is better to preserve them. Protecting the
country
’s ancient
buildings
makes that
country
richer in culture and helps economic development.
Therefore
, the government should have the responsibility of paying attention to maintaining

Change the determiner

It appears that the plural demonstrative these is modifying the singular noun architecture. Consider using a singular demonstrative or a plural noun instead.
