A too ample subject for a so short question. Attaining personality, identity is extenuating enough, then think what takes to be a good personality and some worth identity. Human faces are repeated ... antropomorphim would then require the aspects of the buildings remain so as well.
So, whilst we have what magazines publish. For example, Calatrava is more or less identifiable, hence we may assume he has personality. Yet, is the global extension of his rib-making practice worth the consideration of his fame to such extent we get bored of his once novelties, then school production? The average human won't be able to witness but through mass-media the meaningful buildings ... and for now meaningful is likely to stay reduced to mean the dearest or the more striking ones.
Thenwe have "corporate" identity. Heavens, if someone that can afford knows not what to wear he/she may have personality and identity, but well, his aspect will likely be one of conforming to the view of some another. As long the provider is clever enough he may get a satisfied customer ... I can live with these identities but not think them be the higher achievement of human endeavours.
