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