I accept the idear about form and function, but have to agrea that I personally rather use another idear about material shaping structure, and the only way I found to accomplish the refinement being the truth in the idear of form following function, lay within the materials ability to form by it's abilities, ----- then simplicity must be among your personal values, or it proberly came by itself with the influence these idears had on our surroundings.
How can you not endore the japanese building arts if you are bound in modernism , but then please exchouse when I talk against decor being a mean to make those true values just a lookalike , Mies "speak" a different language than covering what's Lego thinking with tapestry, and please se that I don't talk against building constructers making nice livings, my point is more theoretic as it must be with somone that is mainly self thought. Still a filosofy can stiffen in it's own pureness , it can be difficult to refine the true values when you have your own private pony that you need to promote for all costs, then experiencing a true piece of art somtimes make it worth all the trouble, as now there are "words" pu on , "words" in a language you can understand , understand if your mind is set to understanding vision and visions rather than ideologies.
