In Europe we are also not building castles and chateaus anymore and we still do not believe that we destroyed or lost this part of culture – we just developed into different stage.

But I guess you mean vast demolition which took place in different times during China history, right?

It’s certainly pity we cannot now see the original architectonic of the previous eras but I would not really call it ‘destroying the culture’ …

Especially if we talk about ‘Traditional Culture’ I assume this should be more recognizable in personal habits and behavior rather than in outside elements.

That’s an interesting perspective. If all of the chateaus and castles of Europe were destroyed, would you not consider that a loss of culture? What about the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Wall of China, or the Taj Mahal? I think these objects are the physical manifestation of our collective history, which is exactly what culture is.
