Crumbling Construction

What goes up must come down… true, but in Chinese cities there is a prerequisite, something old must come down before something goes up. There are two truths to why this is the case, building quality during construction and two, a total disregard for the past. I guess if you have 5000 years of history, why do you need 5000+1. Whether it is the ‘hutongs’ (neighborhoods) of Beijing that made some fuss during Olympic construction, or the local school ground, if an investor comes along, out with the old and up with something that is new, for now.
