Issue - "Tradition and modernization are incompatible. One must choose between them."

Must we choose between tradition and modernization, as the speaker asserts? I agree that in certain cases the two are mutually exclusive. For the most part, however, modernization is compatible with tradition. In fact, modern people usually inspire by traditions and make our life be more beautiful and comfortable.

Architecture is one of the realms that arouse serious conflicts between tradition and modernization. Basically, there are two major reasons contribute to the conflicts. First, the difference in life style: as aesthetic evolved in the history. The impact of foreign culture and industry revolution ignite aesthetic change. For example, in china, modern people’s housing are higher, simpler and more convenient, while tradition ones are more complicated and with structural decorations such as sculpture and a. The second cause is the developing of city, needed to meet the rapidly growing economic. The valuable land is limited, and the government should reconstruct the land with old building in order to continue the development of that region. Beyond controversy, most of the old buildings should face destruction. However, before the destruction, modern planners will consider the building’s value and its importance. In fact, people have done many works on the preservation of historical building. If the construction possesses unique characteristics, planners will turn around the historical buildings to tourist spot or museum. For instance, Forbidden City and Terracotta Warriors. Otherwise, they may dissemble the building and move it to new place. Either turning the purpose of building or moving to a new site, it reveals the traditional and contemporary building could exist together.

In term of clothing fashion and art, we can easily find the coexistence of tradition and modernization. Some traditions are unique and remain in our contemporary society. Chinese calligraphy and monochromatic painting technique are the traditional writing and drawing techniques in ancient china. It is quite different to nowadays writing and painting. People use computer or colorful ink for drawing, by contrast, calligraphy and monochromatic painting use feather pen and black ink. Although the popularization of pen ball and computer for writing and drawing, Chinese calligraphy and monochromatic painting are able to be found in many respects including poster and advertising media. In the area of fashion, blue jeans and Chinese cheongsam are representative examples. Blue jeans were appeared in 19th century. Initially, they were worn by mining workers in the US. The rapidly developing of US economics does not evade these sturdy trousers. Interestingly, blue jeans became more acceptable and finally become a general fashion. And now we can find blue jeans nearly all over the world. Sometimes, traditions become rejuvenated through new adaptations and packaging. For example, giving out wedding pastries is a Chinese custom. Traditionally, Chinese bridal cakes were not packaged, but transported “as they were” in wooden crates. By encasing in a smart container and with its own coordinated carrier bag make these traditional pastries becoming more suitable to contemporary tastes and more acceptable to younger customers.

In addition, design for modern usage that looks to tradition for inspiration, seeking a synthesis of what is both unique and universal. In fact, many ancient constructions, sculptures and drawings are wondering and attractive. Modern designers in various respects can be enlightened when they glance through ancient artifacts. There are many cases to illustrate that appropriate combination of the tradition and modernization makes surprising result. For example, two representative buildings designed by renowned architect, Loeh Ming Pei, have become the landmark of the city. First, the Louvre pyramid in Paris. The glass pyramid is the combination of contemporary constructing materials and Egypt’s pyramid. The other is Bank of China Tower located in Hong Kong. The building is constructed in a shape that resembles the stalks of bamboo pushing skyward. More important it takes the bamboo forest allegory one step further. Bamboo is a sign for honored man, who behaves humbly, straight and well appreciated by people, in traditional china culture. Besides, if you pay attention on your surrounding, you may find many things that decorate with ancient characteristics such as living tool, street and telephone booth.

In sum, tradition and modernization exists a certain level of conflict. In most of the cases, the traditional and the contemporary are not polar opposites but exhibits together in various realms such as clothing fashions, arts, and architectures. The coexistence and mutual embracement of tradition and modernization may make the city becoming more attractive and cultural city.
Highlighted some glaring errors for you.

FYI: The most notable example re: architecture is the hutongs in Beijing, by the way.

Of course, being of the blue jean generation and knowing what I do of fashion, I think shoe and boot fashion could be an entirely new paper. I grew up thinking wearing of high spiked heels was the norm for females. I think that is an erroneous thought in retrospect. Nowadays, I think if they design them they should wear them, if they manufacture them they should wear them first. I am also totally abhorant of the use of human hair in so called fashion clothing. Is it me or have you noted also that this "glamour" seems to be usually associated with the bizarre use of chemicals (for instance, liposuction, botox, silicone implants, hair dye, nail lacquer, nail polish remover, etc..) and then the foods oh my you may have opened pandoras box. (Pandora was greek, and big big trouble)
