Tearing down what?!

It must be because i am aging....but i had a sort of shock in reading that they are actually thinking to tear the Capsule Tower down!!
I have studied this building for my history of modern architecture back in 2002: i mean, if a building is on a history of architecture book, it must mean something!!
Plus i like it!
They are thinking to tear it down because it contains asbestos. Now i completely understand the environmental and health issues, but....Can we do something about it!?
Any other solutions?
Btw, this would be already the second building by Kurokawa to be torn down.
