There's a little difference between demolishing not used church and Paris
Hausmann's Paris is valued for urbanism not so much for the architecture.

People here were crying about heritage etc. I think they thought it was gothic, hence my response.

No idea were did you come up with that, it's your logic.

Seriously guys, there were some really valuable buildings, really sad losses in this thread, and some XIX century Disneylike church got the biggest response? This is an architecture forum, I expect some elementary knowledge from people here.

But Abbeville has already lost a great number of pre-war buildings in the bombings. The city centre (apart from the amazing and extraordinary église st.-Vulfran) doesn't look very good in my opinion.
Actually, coud someone show me on google maps where the demolished church was located? I think I've seen the building when I was there, but I need to see the surrounding area to be sure.

Église Saint-Jacques stood in a "faubourg" of the city and had only two interests, a religious interest for the Christians. It's still painful to see a church destroyed, and because it was the landmark of the neighborhood.


The city centre is not exactly charming, ok

Château Neuf de Saint-Germain-en-Laye ( 1556-1598, Île-de-France in north-central France) :



The New Castle, built by Henri II, was the royal residence from 1659 till 1680, year when the yard left it to reinstall in the Old Castle situated nearby, recently enlarged and modernized.
The air terminal, built on the edge of the terrace, had been commanded in 1556 Philibert Delorme by Henri II and Catherine de Medici, three years before the death of king in a tournament, in Paris.
This old royal residence lives to be born king Louis XIV.
January 19th, 1777, the new, ruined Castle, is given by king Louis XVI to his young brother count of Artois with a sum of 600 000 pounds to execute the works. Projects of demolition and reconstruction are established by the architects François-Joseph Bélanger and Jean-François-Thérèse Chalgrin.
But the Revolution arrives, the castle is seized as national asset and sold to the old manager who demolishes it, provides the ground and sells materials...







Vestige of the massive descending terraces :








The plan with terraces of Château Neuf de Saint-Germain-en-Laye has always been inspired by the antique sanctuary of Fortuna Primigenia in Italy :






Video of a 3D reconstruction of the Castle :

Almost nothing remains of the Château de Richelieu. Such a building was too large to be well maintained. It has been torn down by its owner in 1835

Old Cambrai Cathedral (12th and 13th century, northern France) :

Seat of the Bishop, the cathedral was known as "wonder of the Netherlands" because the highest openwork spire was 114 meters above ground level.
During the French Revolution, it was converted into a granary and on 6 June 1796, sold to a merchant from Saint-Quentin, who began its demolition it to sell off the stone






Reconstruction :

La Bastille (1370-1383, Paris) :








14 July 1789...








The Fountain of the Regeneration or Fountain of Isis was a monument set up as 1793 in the location of the destroyed Bastille :




In 1806, Napoleon opted to decorate the place de la Bastille of an elephant who would serve as monumental fountain. It was designed to be 24 m in height, and to be cast from the bronze of cannons taken from the Spanish.
However, only a full-scale plaster model was built.
The monument was demolished in 1846 :




After the July Revolution in 1830, the king Louis-Philippe decided to build the July Column as originally planned in 1792. It was inaugurated in 1840.

Lets restart this thread? Le Havre and many coastal cities in France have lost so much.... And then we have Pompidou who destroyed a lot in Paris....... I just can't believe why he destroyed the Gare Montparnasse! It was amazing!!!! And now we have a big stick there.
