I am only a student (dilettante?) of these concepts.
I feel the humanistic or spiritual and even symolical aspect has a place in buildings whether or not they are high architectecture, That's just because humans are to inhabit the spaces created and our needs are also spiritual, symbolic etc. What the proper expression shall be is an ongoing dialog, like democracy.
I gather that some movements in Art and Architecture are purist in the sense that they are derived from a sense that everything should arise from a single philosophical pretext, or must emanate from a single person's will or expression. When "form follows function"--well who defines the required function? In this respect the Pattern Language and similar ideas may be taking a different approach.
