|What is it for you a good architectural design?
To achieve a perfect urban or rural setting is an important goal. We strive for beauty, sustainability and usability.
A good architectural design is based on problem seeking and problem solving, a design perhaps that would consider the environment restoration including habitat restoration for animals and plant species. I would say good architecture is when the design meets the sustainable criteria and development.
|The first lectures "Architecture as the Making of Metaphors" were organized and conducted by Barie Fez-Barringten near the Art and Architecture building at the Museum of Fine Arts Yale University 11/02/67 until 12/04/67. The guest speakers were: Paul Weiss, William J. Gordon, Christopher Tunnard, Vincent Scully, Turan Onat, Kent Bloomer, Peter Millard, Robert Venturi, Charles Moore, Forrest Wilson, and John Cage.
Barie Fez-Barringten authored a lecture series at Yale University called Architecture the Making Metaphors which was later widely published and formed the basis of a New York City Not-For –Profit organization called Laboratories for Metaphoric Environments (LME). LME researched interdisciplinary programming, design and construction means and methods.

Three major questions confront both the student and the practitioner of architecture: First, what is architecture? Second, why is architecture an art? Third, what are the architecture's organizing principles? Many answers to these questions have been provided by scholars and professionals, but seldom with enough rigors to satisfy close scrutiny. Nor have the questions been attached to proven and workable forms, so that the art could be developed beyond the limits of personal feelings.
In 1967, a group of master students gathered to discuss the issuance of Perspecta 12, Yale's architectural journal - a discussion which summarized the sad state of the profession as well as the major environmental problems society was generating and failing to solve. The group had already been exposed to studies on the creative process, on contradictions of form, on the comprehension of relevant facts of an existing life style, on planning systems, in educational theories, and in building methodologies, yet it seemed that fundamental question inherent in the profession were being skirted rather than directly attacked.
During the series of colloquia at Yale on art, Irving Kriesberg had spoken about the characteristics of painting as a metaphor. It seemed at once that this observation was applicable to architecture, to design of occupiable forms. An appeal to Paul Weiss drew from him the suggestion that we turn to English language and literature in order to develop a comprehensive, specific, and therefore usable definition of metaphor. But it soon became evident that the term was being defined through examples without explaining the phenomenon of the metaphor; for our purposes it would be essential to have evidence of the practical utility of the idea embodies in the metaphor as well as obvious physical examples. Out of this concern grew the proposal for a lecture series wherein professionals and scholars would not only bring forward the uses of metaphor but would also produce arguments against its use. For obviously there can be dissent from the metaphorical method; in this case the dissent (which focuses upon the possibility that the metaphor might obscure reality) actually reinforces the metaphor's wide structural applicability. Thus developed the symposium, which was presented by the Department of Architecture at Yale in the same year. 1967, with the intent "to illuminate, in order to refine and develop, the idea because it makes metaphors; that a work of architecture is a metaphor because it too blends certain programmatic specifics with concerns implicit to its own medium. "Those exploring these possibilities included Paul Weiss, William J. Gordon, Peter Millard, Robert Venturi and Charles Moore;
A good desing in general is when it tries to push the limits of the known
The most appropraite solution for each particular client, budget, location, function and point in time.
A design who can satisfy the client target and in the same time my sense of esthetically &give more function is better than buty design.
Something that touches the heart.
goood design is a good business, it means that architect should offer solutions for every problems, with deep consideration about social, economic and environtment.
I think a good architectural design should be: good looking in every viewpoint angle; good composition of sub-buildings; every rooms of the design has comfortable traffic to each other - and each has really suitable function; and last but not least the design should be satisfied the client and of course should also has good values of aesthetic.
Gothic has always had an appeal, but striking, breaking from trend,making a statement,pushing the boundaries, I guess is the goal.
I prefer simpler designs such as the Pantheon, but I am only just beginning
Good architectural design is the design which owners like and it is structurally possible. Why would architects push their ideas on owners who already know what they want. In case when owners don't know completelly what they want and are seeking advise of an architect or designer then it's architects/ designer's job to help them.
1. Functionally appropriate
2. Strong and unique design
3. Consistent detailing
4. Interesting use of light, color or materials
Well done all over.
A good architectural design is to create a building that is cozy for living, have a sustainable construction, and satisfied our client.
Also must have a good design in architecture and interior.
