The elements of architecture: the needs they meet

A quick and incomplete list:
  • Organizational Clarity
  • Imprintability - provisions for the user to imprint themselves on the building
  • Completeness and continuous opportunity
  • Place - responses to place, connections with place, embodiment of place, clarification and expression of place my place - the place.
  • Having a wholeness of its own
  • Utility - functionality and enablement
  • Connection to the place around
  • Connection(s) through time
  • Beauty - Eloquence and elegance
