The designer has said, "it is optional. Don't do it as you would loose the card if you don't build."

See Re: phase 2, building placement required?

Please note that this article was published before the new edition of the rules. You no longer lose the building card that you place down if you do not build it, so unless you might need the resource on it to activate your building, there is no risk of losing your building card, and you may absolutely pick it back up before buying an assistant.

Right.

Regarding "the Building you placed face down," the original rules said, "If you cannot or do not want to build it, you must discard the card."

The new rules say, "If you cannot or do not want to build it, you return the building card to your hand."

Neither set of rules makes as clear as it might that selecting a building at Sunrise is optional.

They both use the language, "You can place a card from your hand face down in front of you. This is the Building you are going to build this round."

Use of the word "can" suggests optionality.

I believe that it is the case that, with either the old or the new rules, the card that you select at Sunrise (if any) is not available for Production.

Even with the new rules, you cannot return it to your hand until after Production.

Indeed i return it at the end of the phases. So, i am not obliged to place a card face down, and even if i placed it, i may buy it, i may not. Hope i understood well!

That's right. Placing a card face down can be done for bluffing reasons. You don't have to build it you can hire an assistant instead. The face down card goes back in to your hand at the end of the building phase.
