In Reply to:  WHAT IS GOOD ARCHITECTURE?? posted by Amy on January 13, 2004 at 06:48:15:

Take your pick [both apply, however]:

ARCHITECTURE: Buildings and other structures conceived, created and constructed through application, careful adaptation, and innovative use of sound engineering principles along with the satisfying blending of traditional design principles, in a pleasing and aesthetically acceptable manner. [all in accord with the desires, needs, support and approval of the client/owner of the project]

Truly good architecture is produced when there is present, an astute, well-conceived design concept, aesthetically attractive, with proper and efficient functioning, finite detailing, and sound, well-crafted construction— none deficient, or missing.
