The Architect's Plan

一位建筑师想建造一座新的办公楼。他选择了一些看起来很完美的土地。他计划把树砍光,作为建造大楼的地基。但他遇到了个问题……一个大问题。

The land was actually the habitat of several types of birds. Some nature lovers were very upset with the architect. First, they held a rally and told others about the issue. Then, they decided to take legal action because the architect didn't respect the animals' rights.

这片土地实际上是几种鸟类的栖息地。一些自然爱好者对这位建筑师非常不满。首先,他们举行了集会,告诉其他人这个问题。然后,他们决定采取法律行动,因为建筑师不尊重动物的权利。

To resolve the problem, they asked a judge to intervene.

为了解决这个问题,他们请法官介入。

The judge could not call any witnesses for the nature lovers, so he first asked the architect to tell his side of the story.

法官无法为热爱自然的人传唤任何证人,所以他先让建筑师讲述他自己的故事。

Why are you going to destroy the birds' habitat? the judge asked.

法官问道:“你为什么要破坏鸟类的栖息地?”

The architect replied, "I have the deed to the land. I want to make a great building there. As you may know, all my buildings become memorable landmarks. "

建筑师回答说:“我有土地契约。我想在那里建一座伟大的建筑。你可能知道,我所有的建筑都成为了值得纪念的地标。"

Then one of the nature lovers spoke. "We believe that there's no reason to destroy all the trees. We just want to protect the birds. "

然后一个自然爱好者说:“我们相信没有理由摧毁所有的树木。我们只是想保护鸟类。"

Then the judge made his decision. "I proclaim that the office building should be built," he said. "It is not a crime to remove those trees. I cannot give you a sentence for any offenses, but I feel obliged to make one request. I will only allow you to use half of the land. The other half will remain free, so the birds have a place to live.

然后法官做出了判决:“我宣布在此处修建办公楼是合法的。”“移走那些树没有犯法。我不能判你任何刑罚,但我有一个要求。我只允许你使用一半的土地。另一半保持原样,这样鸟儿就有地方住了。

The nature lovers could not conceal their gratitude. All of the people cheered.

自然爱好者们无法掩饰他们的感激之情。所有的人都欢呼起来。
