Architects try to evolve graceful graphic patterns with little concern for the utilizations of the different parts of large buildings and some students scarcely bear in mind the purpose of the edifice. Physical function does not determine form and no such determination explains why a visible kinship should result between function and expression. The meaning of beauty emerges only if we understand beauty as a way of perfecting expression. Function then consists in abstract principles not in shapes. Future generations will consider the relationship of a building to its environment as more important than the way it expresses its function when considered in isolation.
