Signs and Meaning in Architecture

In order for a "Mere Building" to become Architecture, must it mean something? How much does the generic office tower mean, which even at its worst, most would still consider it Architecture, albeit BAD Architecture. In the end what does the Sigrum's building really mean to the non-architect?  Does a building's size, or use, or cost automatically make it architecture? Does the purpose of its construction, does its builder's intent affect how we view it?  To broaden our investigation further, what distinquishes the questions of Architecture from that of other art?
