How old is old architechure ? 20years or 50years ago?
The day before today is old.
Forbidden city of China is very very old, Empire state of NY is very old
& Bank of China is old if compare with 2ifc & Taipei 101.

I'm just kidding!

I prefer old. Any city if it has enough money could make a Dubai, Shanghi, L.A., Las Vegas, or even a Chicago. You just can't duplicate in a authentic way a Rome, Florence, Trier, Brugge, Edinburgh and a host of others.

Both mondern and old have their good points but I just prefer old. It has a dignity that modern just can't touch.

i prefer old architecture ,modern designs they are very commercial ,in the mean time i might look great but in 20 30 years it will look ugly just look at the 80's or 70's building most of them dont even fit with the present urban environment.
