Beauty | Function Beauty | Function Presentation Transcript

  • beauty | function
  • a certain
    tension exists
  • between those who design
  • to make things “better”
  • (more aesthetically pleasing
  • by abstract standards)
  • and those who build
  • to make “better” things
  • (more functional
  • by technical standards)
  • two sides…
  • with different perspectives
  • beauty is in the eye of the beholder
  • but is the eye beautiful?
  • meaning is lost
  • frustration abounds
  • everyone speaks…
  • in different languages
  • translation
    requires patience
  • but understanding is possible
  • as designers show engineers
  • that beauty has a function
  • and engineers teach designers
  • there is beauty in function
  • the tension resolves
  • everyone wins
