A great loss in my hometown Alkmaar was the Sint-Dominicuskerk (Saint-Dominic's Church), a 19th century catholic church built by Pierre Cuypers. It was demolished in 1985 and replaced by a shopping mall.

Before:



During demolition:



Then and now (though both old pictures):

It had something to do with the catholic fear that the building, not being used for catholic services anymore, might be used by other believers (such as moslims). For that reason, many no longer used catholic churches in the Netherlands were demolished in the past decades.

Romania - Ploiesti South train station, before and after repeated bombing of the city in Operation Tidal Wave by the Allies during the Oil Campaign of World War II







Althought the romanian authorities intended to rebuild the heritage buildings destoyed (including this one), the communist authorities established in the city opposed, resulting this building we see today:

One thing I can NEVER EVER forgive my home city, is that they demolished a beautiful and grand Belle Epoque hotel on the opposite of the Porta Nigra in the late 60ies. Now we have a large, ugly, boxy 60ies building sitting there amidst the well preserved 19th century cityscape...

then:

It had survived the WWII bombings untouched!

now:

what's worse is that it blocks the view of the campanile...poorly conceived plan.
