In practice, there are two main factors which prevent a building standing in an unaltered state for, say, 600 years: one is the natural tendency of things to fall down, and the other is the remorseless march of fashion. It is part of the very nature of human existence, that what one man builds is no sooner completed, than another declares it out of fashion, a third redundant, and afourth seeks to tear it down. Even such a landmark figure as Sir Christopher Wren, were he to return today, would only find 11 of his 51 churches intact.
