When designing a building, the most important factor is the intended use of the building rather than its outward appearance. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your knowledge or experience.
In this modern era, there are several buildings of various types. In the topic of building design, some architects think about its future function and some think about its outside appearance. But I firmly believe that the use of the building should be a key factor in the building but the appearance is also important.
Mainly the shape, design of the building should be different and appropriate according to its future function. Hospitals, shopping malls, educational institutions, offices,s and so on have different architecture depending on its function. If a building is failed to fulfill its desired function then it should be a failed project. For example, if it is intended to make a university there should be a parking area, big campus, cafeteria, playground and inside the university there should be faculty room for teachers, big classrooms in that a lot of students can seat and use, library with a plethora of books, and other useful designs.
However, the outside design is also important to fascinate the crowd. Building’s outer look is also important because designing a building is always an art. If the city is filled with awful structures of buildings it seems dreadful while attractive and enchanting designs are eye-catching to everyone. Architecture is not only to describe the general terms to design buildings it is also a significant form of art. There are a plethora of examples with fascinating design, well construction, buildings fulfil its function, and turned in tourist attractions. Hordes of people visit those buildings only for its outer mesmerizing design. For example, Burj Khalifa, Al Hamra Tower, and so on.
To sum up, in my view an architect should think about its outer design besides its future function. It will enhance the art and also will glorify the city.
