What makes a good Architectural Design?

What is in the design that you consider to be good design?

- Must be original
- Must be creative
- Must be out of the box
- Must be under the theme
- Spacious
- Colourful

The marina Barrage has an original idea where there is a big green patch. This shows that it fits the theme of the reservoir. It is very creative which attracts a lot of people. It is also out of the box, based on its structure. It is also very green and has no mono colour. This attracts a lot of people and it is also spacious when we look at the top of the building. This allows a lot of people to eat picnic on the building.
