Our culture seems so transient, the buildings we design and construct will probably not last more than 80 years or so.

You're probably right about the Hoover Dam. It couldn't be build today particularly due to environmental impact assessment and environmental regulations.

The hardest part would be getting the permit for such kind of structure.:-)
