Formatted abstract
...From the evaluation of architecture through expert, disciplinary criticism to the occupation, use, and “appreciation” of buildings by a lay public, the concept of reception goes to the very heart of what architects on the one hand, and society on the other, regard as “good”, significant, and meaningful qualities in buildings. Given the oft-times discrepancy between the judgements of these two groups, a reception theory of architecture may offer one instrument to argue for the ongoing relevance and viability of architecture per se. For this reason alone, it is a valuable ongoing project.
