Yes. Those were really pretty buildings. But this is happening all over the world. I read somewhere that the Chinese are destroying their old,ancient buildings to make for new modern projects. I have to agree the modern architecture is really bland. No style in them just big boxes . But it also gives buildings a bit more formal look. Companies are not too keen to invest in different architectural styles or designs since it requires spending more money
and with so much competition and such a tight budget companies are not really
interested in unnecessary spending of money. Sigh! art is slowly disappearing from this world.

At least there are several cities that are reconstructing and building in classic styles.

A saddening phenomenon, indeed; heritage that has been lost forever.

Despite living in Guadalajara, many of these constructions are unknown to me, it'd be great if you could post further information, such as the location, or - like they do in similar threads - a picture of what was built to replace those torn-down jewels.

This thread will last for a while, i have lots of photos and i as mentioned from the beggining of it, i´m doing it to show my personal plan to "repair" the image of our downtown.

Cheers!

What a saddening thread. To think that I once lived in a city that has lived such architectural massacre, is indeed devastating.
But at least, we can recreate the city in our minds thanks to your images Master-Mata, keep 'em coming.

These threads always depress me. When and why did the entire world decide that beauty and heritage no longer matter, and why didn't we learn lessons from the first wave of this? I refuse to believe that what we're currently building is the best we can achieve with the technology and creative minds we have today, and yet it's apparently the cynical minds who win out.

Can we get some comparison photos of what Guadalajara looks like today, including areas that still have historic structures intact?

Sure, as soon as i have time to do so, i will show you how it looks right now, what were the "replacements" for those buildings, and what was left. The city is still one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico.
