No building can become a Work of Architecture
without first meeting the requirements of practicality.


A Building must serve well the various uses for which it is intended.


A Building must be constructed and maintained at a reasonable cost. The Building must retain its value with the passage of time.


A Building must be environmentally friendly, with consideration given to the use of materials that are renewable, using minimum amounts of total energy from extraction, processing, shipping and installation of the materials and in the operation and maintenance of the Building.


A Building must be well built to resist the various deteriorating forces to which it could be subjected.


A Building must be easy to use, with consideration given to proper lighting, climate control, sanitation, acoustics, circulation and healthy environments.
