    I like mordern style architecture, lots of interesting forms, in collusus buildings, the Gerkin in London falls into this category, so does the Eden centre in cornwall. There are now so many diffferent forms of architecture that everyone perceives a building into a category that they feel is fit.

    I like the old buildings best. Would really like to have a plopable cathedral large enough to see some detail. Those buildings, if you look at pics of the cities they're in, really dominate the skyline.

    Art deco and certain modern buildings. But I'll be the first to say that I HATE buildings that try to be too modern. Ya know, the ones with all the totally weird designs. To me, they've always been architecture's version of "modern art" (ie not really art).

    High Rise:  Gothic Revival, with Art Deco as a close runner-up.
    Mid Rise:  Neo-classical and Chicago School

    My favorites are art deco, prairie school, arts and crafts, shingle, and 1960's era contemporary. That kind of contemporary has a wort of warm feeling that you don't get in modern contemporary.

    I like good architecture!

    Definition:

    Good architecture = architecture I like :-)

    If I had to decide I woul choose the "form follows function"-approach, like Bauhaus-architecture.
