Form Follows Function? explains and then challenges the notion that form in architecture and product design is derived solely from practical functions. The text sets the role of function in a historical perspective quoting extensively from the writings of theorists and designers. The 70 illustrations include works of the Arts and Crafts movement, Modernism, Street Style and recent Italian and Japanese design. They highlight the symbolic, associative and decorative functions of objects, challenging many traditional assumptions.
