Basically CONCEPT is an IDEA, If an Idea carries an Individual Thought Process to evolve the design it is known as Function Follows Form, or it carries Building Profile to evolve the design then it is known as Form Follows Function.So it depends on the type of the building and style of architecture your going to work on.
Individual Thought Process = Function Follows Form
Building Profile = Form Follows Function
which one is better in most of the cases?...function follows form or form follows function...
BETTER,BEST,GOOD,EXCELLENT is not about which method you using, its about applying Right method on Bright Problem. Like most of the time FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION works better on INSTITUTIONAL Projects,FUNCTION FOLLOWS FORM works better on Convention Centers etc...
INSTITUTIONAL PROJECTS - FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
EXHIBITION CENTERS - FUNCTION FOLLOWS FORM
Both the methods are two hands so Right hand for Right job.
But my personal suggestion is don take this as a rule or theory that you should follow.Bcoz Architecture is not only about logical Thinking Its More Than That.
i wud go wid the forms and creating functions in them and later redeveloping the forms according to the functions followed....wat say? :)
Thats the better one... i think u got it....but don set a formula for urself....
