What makes a good Architectural Design?

A good Architectural Design is considered to be able to suit the current situation and context of the factors of the area around the building. Factors of the area include the population of the people around the area and their age group as well as what kind of aesthetics that the people like.

An example of a good Architectural Design is the Fairbank's University of Alaska Museum of the North. People using this buildings are visitors to the museum looking for Alaska's people, places and wildlife.

People of this kind would like to see a design that can resemble Alaska. The design of the museum is inspired by fire inside ice, as Alaska snows most of the time, and thus the design being inspired by ice and glaciers makes it a suitable design. The design comprise
s of the shape and structure of glaciers. The building's centrepiece is able to cast a warm fire-like glow to resemble fire inside ice.
