"...Harmony of old and new, detail design, choice of materials and overall craftsmanship."

Any reaction to that criteria for selecting an inspiring building?:

Do you mean the criterion (ctriteria is plural BTW - useage: "that criterion", "those criteria") of "...significant contribution to the environmental improvement of Worcester"?
The word "environment" can mean "surroundings", as in, what people experience every day as they move through any space; it can also mean the more recently-general useage, i.e. air quality, water quality, and so on.
I suspect that "reaction" would mean a negative reaction to the latter useage of the word "environment", however, IMO, an inspiring building would score high in *both* uses of the word: it's appearance *and* functionality would enhance the experiences of those people who would see and use the building, and it would utilize construction methods which minimize its negative impact upon air/water quality, resource consumption, and so on. Such structures do exist.
