Over my career in memorial preservation, I have noticed an inadequate respect to historic monuments. It seems like the majority of our society were lacking attention to our history. However, focused on new innovative designs and modern architecture.
With the mind set that is easier and cheaper to build new buildings instead of preserving historic ones. Why wouldn’t you remove a dilapidated building or monument and replace with a large new shiny one.
Progress sounds great, and in most city’s and towns, development effects every living thing. I would like to draw attention to why preservation is so important by stating some simple truths. First of all, preservation and restoration offers a connection with our past. The structures teach us about the history that happened before we existed and promotes the respect for those who lived in different times. Historic monuments encourage pride or our heritage, making us unique in the the world. Historical structures bring charm and certain character to our society’s.
With the bottom line as modern driving force, preservation should be wide spread. It is often more economical to preserve old monuments and structures than to build new ones. Preservation is good for our economy. Quite often Architectural monuments and buildings are big tourist attractions. Most people visiting a new place want to experience the essence of the place, the essence or spirit is usually expressed through agricultural buildings and monuments.
Tourists can provide locals with jobs and extra income. Preserving historical structures produces workplaces for both local people and global experts. Preservation requires higher skills and knowledge than the average construction company and thus results in higher wages which also contribute to a growing economy. Finally, it is green, I do not like to use the word “ green “ it has become a selling feature, used by companies to push products that have very little environmental benefits . Saying that, green is a good description of preservation.
Building new energy efficient buildings is important, but preserving the old ones is as “ green” as it gets. Preservation is the ultimate method of recycling. It helps save on construction waste and reduces energy that would be used on manufacturing and shipping building materials and equipment.
