Abstract [en]

What is quality in architecture and urban design? Practising architects need to interpret the signs of quality in order to produce good architecture. But architects also have to understand quality for judging design proposals. From this point of view quality is a key concept in architecture and urban design. Quality is inseparably linked to the relationship to the design, production, and our experience of the built environment. It is impossible to point out a winning proposal in architectural competitions without ranking their quality. The fact that judgments can change over time and differ among individuals doesn't free members of the jury from forming opinions about quality questions. Look back on origin of the concept is in important from this perspective.
