Destroy or conserve Score: 4.5 May 25th, 2018 by Wallis Yu

Filled with countless kinds of modern building, the city transformed from a beautiful and simple city to a modern but uncomfortable one. Thus, in my opinion, I prefer buildings and house with tradition outlooks for instance my home town Tainan, the most attractive city, integrated old-fashion and fashion styles.

Destroyed and replace the traditional building most denied the ancestor who had hard working in our amazing hometown. We almost break their endeavor which they spent nearly several decades. Hence, it is a disaster for all the people in the city whether the infants or elder. In another reason, new kinds of building means similarity. The city would be almost the same wherever you come from. We, the city, lose the special quality of ourselves, and no one would remember this unique city after decades.

It would be a city integrated several types of design. It would be a little contradictive, but like an erudite old man who is energetic and never feel exhausted. The government perfectly combined completely different styles into a harmonious masterpiece. That is the reason I would like to live in Tainan which always attract me to explore it’s new fact.
