Louis Sullivan

"It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic,
Of all things physical and metaphysical,
Of all things human and all things super-human,
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."

It's about time for us to think differently than this 1896 dogma that follows an expression from sculpture Horatio Greenough (1805-1852).
