Abstract [en]

The presented report is a summary of the research program Quality in Architecture and Urban Planning. The aimed have been to develop concepts and theory regarding architectural

quality. ‘Quality’ is discussed by three different studies. The first is an analysis of quality criteria

for a Swedish architecture reward. Then architects’ views on quality management in the design process

were studied. The last study concerned debate on architecture in current daily press. The

changing perspectives highlight the diversity of how ‘quality’ is perceived in the design and construction

process. The results are presented in five statements on ‘architectural quality’:

1) The use of the concept can appear unclear and confusing,

2) ‘Quality’ is an open and evaluating concept,

3) The concept reflects a divide between architects and their customers,

4) It is a value laden concept, as are the criteria used by professional practitioners judging the built

environment and

5) Normative critique of architectures is based upon an external model, while interpreting critique is

based upon internal experience.
