What are some characteristics of buildings that have good architecture? We are aware that quality architecture can be beautiful, welcoming, easily accessible, and long-lasting. We are also aware that it may be feasible, socially responsible, economically sound, and environmentally friendly. But what exactly makes it so wonderful? Great architecture has the potential to transform our world into a more pleasant and fulfilling place by providing users with a satisfying and upbeat experience and making a connection with their feelings. The result of good design is that it is approachable and thoughtful.
The subreddit Friendly Architecture is devoted to collecting and sharing some of the world’s friendliest architectural designs, from homeless benches to solar park benches with USB charging ports. For your convenience, we have compiled a selection of the most noteworthy designs that were contributed to this group. Therefore, scroll down to check them out, and then tell us which one comes to mind as the most important point. By means of this post, we also want to convey our appreciation to those imaginative designers who put so much care and delicacy into developing those things.
