1479 Maese Juan Agusti stopped directing the construction of the Cathedral of Gerona

1732 birth of James Adam

As to private business,--I shall get none. There are now building in this city two capital houses by the Fishers, who call themselves my friends. Do they employ me?--John Dorsey has now no less than 15 plans now in progress of execution, because he charges nothing or them. The public affront put upon me as a professional man, in the erection of the Academy of Art from the design of John Dorsey,--by a vote of all the men who pretend to patronize the arts in this city,--would have driven any artist from it...
--Benjamin Henry Latrobe, letter to Hazelhurst, 21 July 1806.

Demolition vs. Restoration
I know that demolition of many 1960s and 1970s buildings is inevitable, but, with the ease of digital photography today, these buildings should at least be preserved with lots and lots of images. In many ways, I see the concrete hulks of the 60s and 70s as a rare moment in architectural history, and such sentiment probably won't be popular until most of them are gone.
