they just want comfortable and good or different looking building. may building sizes matter them. only architect can criticise other architect's design in manner which he see his building. architecture is like religion it only matter who obey that religion. architecure is only for architects.
thats really bold rajiv, and bold in architecture is good...but so is humility..a building is humble before god if it is designed for such a purpose is it not? i would hope that people who use my buildings know what architecture is, because it is their reactions to my interpretations that i will use to design. normal people do know what architecture is, they simply have and feel the need to use fewer words to describe form, space...but they are assuming an architect knows that they understand space, or insofar as the concept of space, and has therefore come to them to help them arrange it.. space is there, architects merely arrange it, fill it, open it up, or gather it. i am a normal person as well as an architect, at least as normal as one can be and still be separate from the person next to them, and people have individual integrity, just as buildings do. people are not cattle that are merely led into our works by the command of our critics, donÂºt confuse architeture with pop culture. many of the buildings and works your studying in school right now were conceived of, paid for, and built by normal people, not licensed architects (in terms of the current understanding). further, by the end of your conversation with the client, it is your responsiblity to assure your clients understanding of at least your architecture for them...if not...they may become your worst critic. good luck in your search rajiv,
