There are different principles of architecture that are available that are being followed by different architects because they know that these principles will truly help them a lot with the things that they have to do. I believe that the six fundamental principles are placed, because, without the right place, the right structure will not be built. The structure is another principle because the structure has to be proper and correct before it will be created. The function is another principle because what is the purpose of creating something when it is not being used the way that it should. Sustainability is another principle. It should be something that will withstand the test of time. Lastly, legibility is another important principle. The structure should look clean and polished before it can be considered to be good.

The correct answers to this question are Symmetria, Order, Arrangement, Propriety, Economy, and Eurythmic. Without these key six principles, there could be significant issues with an architect being able to build the property. There are many other fundamental principles for architecture, but these are the main six. Symmetria is a reference to parts of the building that are identical and symmetrical. They will have the same ration as the rest of the building. Propriety is meeting the needs of the customer. Eurythmic is related to propriety, for it is necessary for eurythmic to be proportionate. The economy is important to agriculture because, with a good economy, more buildings can be built.

There are six fundamental principles of architecture that are available such as the following: symmetry, order, arrangement, economy, propriety, and euthymia. These principles would need to be applied to how they would do work otherwise, it will be hard for them to come up with the right designs that will be perfect for their clients.

Symmetry is always going to be important because it can be bothersome when you see something that is not symmetrical. It is also important that the proper order of things will be followed or it can be hard for the proper process to take place. Architects will know how to apply these principles when they already need to do so.

There are 6 fundamental principles of architecture that cannot be denied such as the following: balance, alignment, proximity, space, and contrast. If these things will not be considered, just imagine how chaotic the buildings and other establishments are going to be. These things may seem simple but it would take careful planning and measuring before the right figures can be given.

Take note that the principles may not be limited to these 6. There are some architects who can think of more especially when they are working on some of the most important projects of their lives. It is important that they make the buildings durable so they can withstand the test of time.

Architecture is the design of buildings, homes and other structures. An architect will learn about the six fundamental principles of architecture while in school. Then when they get out into the workforce, architects will apply their knowledge of what they learned to their practice. They may design a house by drawing blueprints. These blueprints will show the different walls and outline of the building.

The six fundamental principles of architecture include symmetria, order, arrangement, propriety, economy and eurythmia. Symmetria refers to the identical parts of the building are symmetrical or have the same ratio in reference to the rest of the building or structure. Propriety refers to the conforming to the needs of the customer. Eurythmia refers also to be proportionate.
