Form Follows Function


Quote from Modern Architecture, Louis Sullivan originally stated:

“It is the pervading law of all things organic, and inorganic,
of all things physical and metaphysical,
of all things human and all things super-human,
of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul,
that the life is recognizable in its expression,
that form ever follows function. This is the law”

Frank Lloyd Wright later said:

“‘Form follows function’ – that has been misunderstood.

Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”

Looking at Frank Lloyd Wright’s work it seems he uses the Fibonnaci Series as a design template.
