The war was sad, for sure, but the replacement buildings looks even better than the original, albeit from totally different style.

These pavillons were temporary anyway, mostly just a wooden frame covered with plaster.

Terrible.
So any buildings were destroyed by pointless wars.

Tour Aurore, one of the first French skyscrapers, is about to be demolished.

The Chaillot palace works better, because it allows the space to flow towards and across the river. Otherwise those sharp angle streets would "crash" into a wall. It also gives the deserved attention to the Eiffel tower allowing it to become a focal point rather then treating it as something in the backyard. It is a tribute to the landmark.
