Abstract

The quality of the works that create settlements and allow their inhabitants to enjoy them is an essential component in determining the life quality level. This is why assessing the quality of a project has become increasingly important in the cultural debate and the regulatory development in Europe. This can be understood as the performance propensity, which considers the functional qualities together with the perceptive and symbolic attributes both of the works to be accomplished and the interventions to be carried out on the existing heritage. This assessment must be extended to the entire life cycle of the work. Inspired by this hypothesis, this essay analyses the mental and cultural mechanisms that govern the entire project process, and investigates the nature and impact that the assessment instruments have on this process starting from the formation of the generating idea up to the executive definition of the project.
