What makes a architecture

It was stated that a building should meet obligations of commodity (utilitas), firmness (firmitas), and delight (venustas). Commodity addresses how a building serves its function and can be made more useful to the occupants. Firmness means endurance, or a building's ability to stand up to natural forces over time. Delight refers to aesthetics.
