If form doesn't follow function,

why are doors the size they are?
why are they located where they are?
why does the roof as a form exist?
why are sloped roofs sloped?
why are windows located where they are?
why are chairs the sizes they are?
why are tables the heights they are?
why are kitchens designed the way they are?
why are stairs proportioned the way they are?
why are corridors the sizes they are?
why are ceilings the heights they are?
why are heating vents located where they are?


Get the point? FORM EVER FOLLOWS FUNCTION.

and FORM AND FUNCTION ARE ONE.


And it applies especially well to everything else in nature....
