    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
