There is an artistic aspect to architecture, but I think you also have to keep the customer demands in mind. It's a business. One of the Left's great victories has been painting is as selfish. Rand actually embraces this! I just don't agree with it. Those who want handouts at other people's expense are actually the selfish ones. They also want credit for altruism when they want to force others to pay. They're just being generous with other people's money.
