    Re: to give due weight

    Even in the case of “spectacle” or “visionary” architecture, we need to apply the principle that “all relevant aspects are given due weight.

    I thought it may be an expression because it is used in the article I'm reading.

    We must ensure that any relevant aspect is given (treated in accordance with) the importance it deserves.
