Can architecture be a great art form? If so, give an example and a brief justification.
Great? That's an illusion - very much like `the best'. There's no such thing as the best in the real world...
Any building which is the distilled essence of an age or of a culture. :)))

Frank, very true.
I guess I'm from the old school, thinking that architecture, like art, proceeds by exemplary particular works (masterpieces). Do any of you think a piece of mundane tract housing is as significant architecturally as, say, your favorite piece of architecture?
