Good architecture has no limits of space or style. It has no fixed agenda. It is always a collaboration between the architect and the client. And because the client’s needs are paramount, good architecture can’t be defined as traditional or modern, but as appropriate and functional.
Functional architecture is the most pleasing design that best serves the client’s needs. If you can’t make something that serves those needs, than you are doing a disservice, even if you are published in a glossy magazine.
