F•R•O•M BAUHAUS & FUNCTION TO DESIGN POETICS

FORM FOLLOWS IDEA...

and THE most relevant evolutionary process exemplars, from my own perspective, would be that of the folding chair and the humble Anglepoise lamp, because of their role over time, in providing an understanding of the the fact that ... 

INFORMATION IS THE LIGHT OF KNOWLEDGE      

AND THAT KNOWLEDGE + IMAGINATION ARE

in[DEED]  THE VERY SOURCE OF IDEAS

which undoubtedly provides the potentiality of the qualitative 
enhancement & advancement of the EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS.
The future of that process, however, since the outset of HOMO SAPIENS, has been in the "hands" and MINDs of OUR species.

A species which is driven by the dual concepts of ...

benefit for the individual 
and benefit for the collective
Concepts which can so easily be diverted to the use
of THE POWER of KNOWLEDGE for GOOD or EVIL. 
 

SO let us now consider the fact that America's best IDEA
to date, was most probably the establishment of the Yellowstone National Park; and that the TIME has NOW arrived for humanity to continue [IT]'s urgent quest to

As Leonardo da Vinci's life-long friend Machiavelli wrote,
in The Prince in 1513 ...

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate ≠  a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all who profit by the old order, and only luke-warm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order. This quality of lukewarmness arises partly from a fear of adversaries, who have the law on their side, and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had actual experience of it.”

Form in relation to design can be expressed in many ways functionally and involves

a vast array of materials, textures and colours; as well as issues of shape, scale,

proportion and weight, and not least cultural associations in relation to need, desire,

meaning, value and context as well as function; but in the final analysis [IT] IS very

definitely, as Maxine Taylor and Ralph Ball have proposed, the IDEA which drives 

all aspects of the design process.

As Alpha posted some 3 years ago in commenting on this masterpiece of an IDEA ...

  "It would be awesome for PIXAR to consider doing a movie about

   these lamps. Nothing, not even Toy Story screams PIXAR nostalgia

   like these lamps."

The Brain Trust will point to an issue and then allow the director to figure out the problem on his or her own. Most importantly, of course, is that the film is under review, and not the filmmaker.

As Catmull has confirmed, “You are not your idea, and if you identify too closely with your ideas, you will take offense when challenged.” This is also true in the writer’s room. The best joke should make the comedy and nothing else really matters.

The Brain Trust has grown a great deal over the years. It went from three people to nearly twenty people for the 2015 hit, Inside Out. The story was also more complicated, as the writers tried to characterize emotions in the mind.

In the debate at this table, director Pete Docter opened up the conversation and displayed a 10-minute preview to the group. Some members thought the scene about memories fading was too complicated for the movie. They wanted to keep it simpler. But, Brad Bird—director of The Incredibles and Warner Brother’s The Iron Giant, had a different idea.

THE SUCESS of Angelpoise Is entirely related to the success of PIXAR and the original values which created Luxor Junior, which itself highlights the failure of the likes of Toyota to live up to its founding eastern principles • which were the secret of its long standing success • whilst [BE]ing juxtaposed to working within a global mindsight based on western principles. Principles which have themselves been betrayed by the shenanigans of the Volkswagen Group's influence on the MINDSIGHT of the German Motor Manufacturing Industry.
