"On Criticism" an aggregate thread

If a building design is built and finished, what's the real use of being critical of it? It's doubtful that any criticism will change a building once it's already built. If the criticism is positive, does that mean the design should thereafter be emulated? Or, conversely, if the criticism is negative, does that mean the design should thereafter be completely avoided? Does it really just boil down to approval or rejection?

Personally, I'm more comfortable being critical of design process, which involves how a building design (built or not) arrives at its finished state. The object of such criticism is to illuminate how the creative mind operates.
