delight or outrage?

I believe that Architecture is,

 “subjective”

Based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions: “his views are highly subjective”

“there is always the danger of making a subjective judgement” Contrasted with objective.

The images tagged on these pages are my personal view on what I consider as the very best in Architecture (delight) and the opposite view (outrage).

I have purposely not identified the building, designer or location in order not to influence your reaction…please vote.

Each image will then be sorted in a “delight” and “outrage” galleries adjacent.

If I was to realize new buildings I should have to have new technique. I should have to design buildings that they would not only be appropriate to materials but design them so the machine that would have to make them could make them surpassingly well.

You cannot simply put something new into a place. You have to absorb what you see around you, what exists on the land, and then use that knowledge along with contemporary thinking to intepret what you see.
