Greenough's writings were for a long time largely forgotten, and were rediscovered only in the s. Ina selection of his essays was published as Form and Function: Remarks on Art by Horatio Greenough.
Sullivan was Greenough's much younger compatriot, and admired rationalist thinkers such as ThoreauEmersonWhitmanand Melvilleas well as Greenough himself. InSullivan coined the phrase in an article titled The Tall Office Building Artistically Considered,  though he later attributed the core idea to the Roman architect, engineer, and author Marcus Vitruvius Polliowho first asserted in his book De architectura that a structure must exhibit the three qualities of firmitas, utilitas, venustas — that is, it must be solid, useful, beautiful.
For Sullivan this was distilled wisdom, an aesthetic credo, the single "rule that shall permit of no exception". The full quote is: Where function does not change, form does not change. The granite rocks, the ever-brooding hills, remain for ages; the lightning lives, comes into shape, and dies, in a twinkling.
It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic, of all things physical and metaphysical, of all things human and all things superhuman, 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. If the shape of the building was not going to be chosen out of the old pattern book, something had to determine form, and according to Sullivan it was going to be the purpose of the building.
Thus, "form follows function", as opposed to "form follows precedent". Sullivan's assistant Frank Lloyd Wright adopted and professed the same principle in a slightly different form—perhaps because shaking off the old styles gave them more freedom and latitude.
Debate on the functionality of ornamentation[ edit ] Inthe Austrian architect Adolf Loos wrote an allegorical essay titled " Ornament and Crime " in reaction to the excessive invented ornament used by the Vienna Secession architects.
Modernists adopted Loos's moralistic argument as well as Sullivan's maxim. Loos had worked as a carpenter in the USA.
He celebrated efficient plumbing and industrial artifacts like corn silos and steel water towers as examples of functional design.

June Learn how and when to remove this template message The phrase "form ever follows function" became a battle cry of Modernist architects after the s. The credo was taken to imply that decorative elements, which architects call "ornament", were superfluous in modern buildings.
However, Sullivan himself neither thought nor designed along such lines at the peak of his career. Indeed, while his buildings could be spare and crisp in their principal masses, he often punctuated their plain surfaces with eruptions of lush art nouveau and celtic revival decorations, usually cast in iron or terracotta, and ranging from organic forms like vines and ivy, to more geometric designs, and interlace, inspired by his Irish design heritage.
Probably the most famous example is the writhing green ironwork that covers the entrance canopies of the Carson, Pirie, Scott and Company Building on South State Street in Chicago. These ornaments, often executed by the talented younger draftsman in Sullivan's employ, would eventually become Sullivan's trademark; to students of architecture, they are his instantly recognizable signature.
Product design[ edit ] One episode in the history of the inherent conflict between functional design and the demands of the marketplace took place inafter the introduction of the streamlined Chrysler Airflowwhen the American auto industry temporarily halted attempts to introduce optimal aerodynamic forms into mass manufacture.
Some car-makers thought aerodynamic efficiency would result in a single optimal auto-body shape, a "teardrop" shape, which would not be good for unit sales. Like the annual model year change, so-called aerodynamic styling is often meaningless in terms of technical performance.
Subsequently, drag coefficient has become both a marketing tool and a means of improving the sale-ability of a car by reducing its fuel consumption, slightly, and increasing its top speed, markedly.
The American industrial designers of the s and '40s like Raymond LoewyNorman bel Geddes and Henry Dreyfuss grappled with the inherent contradictions of "form follows function" as they redesigned blenders and locomotives and duplicating machines for mass-market consumption.
Loewy formulated his "MAYA" Most Advanced Yet Acceptable principle to express that product designs are bounded by functional constraints of math and materials and logic, but their acceptance is constrained by social expectations. His advice was that for very new technologies, they should be made as familiar as possible, but for familiar technologies, they should be made surprising.
By honestly applying "form follows function", industrial designers had the potential to put their clients out of business. Some objects made too durable would prevent sales of replacements. Victor Papanek died was an influential recent designer and design philosopher who taught and wrote as a proponent of "form follows function.
This does not mean that process is irrelevant, but that processes compatible with an artifact's requirements lead to roughly similar results. If the architecture dictates how the business operates then the business is likely to suffer from inflexibility unable to adapt to change.
SOA Service-Oriented Architecture enables an Enterprise Architect to rearrange the "form" of the architecture to meet the functional requirements of a business by adopting standards based communication protocols which enable interoperability.
Furthermore, Domain-Driven Design postulates that structure Software architectureDesign PatternImplementation should emerge from constraints of the modeled domain Functional requirement. While "form" and "function" may be more or less explicit and invariant concepts to the many engineering doctrines, Metaprogramming and the Functional programming paradigm lend themselves very well to explore, blur and invert the essence of those two concepts.
The Agile software development movement espouses techniques such as 'test driven development' in which the engineer begins with a minimum unit of user oriented functionality, creates an automated test for such and then implements the functionality and iterates, repeating this process.
The result and argument for this discipline are that the structure or 'form' emerges from actual function and in fact because done organically, makes the project more adaptable long term as well of as higher quality because of the functional base of automated tests.
Automobile designing[ edit ] If the design of an automobile conforms to its function—for instance the Fiat Multipla 's shape, which is partly due to the desire to sit six people in two rows—then its form is said to follow its function.In a letter dated March 31, , Abigail Adams writes to her husband, John Adams, urging him and the other members of the Continental Congress not to forget The future First Lady wrote in.
