More > work of architecture must fulfill its function, whether it is a library, museum, church, school, etc. If architecture does not function it becomes large-scale sculpture.

The second type of beauty comes from the deeper meaning that the architecture embodies. This deeper meaning comes from the ideas and ideals the architect is trying to express in and through the architecture. If a building can integrate commodity, firmness, and delight, then it is good architecture.< Less

More > clients to explore variations of the I-House. Using Faulkner’s characters made it possible to analyze interesting and unique characters in such a way that census information could not match.

It was discovered that through manipulations of the type’s form and elements many variations can be developed while still maintaining the essence of the I-House. If the rules of the I-House are pushed too much the semblance of the type is lost and ceases to be a functioning house. The I-House variations can be used to express the inhabitant while conforming to their needs.< Less
