Always remember the famous words of Mies....Form follows FUNCTION. I find form so interesting ONLY after I realize that it has fully satisfied the function of the intended user(s)...its as simple as that. Of course one always has in the back of their mind the various options that can satisfy this criteria, and it is then from these options that Interesting Form is created. Your instructor is clueing you in on not to Impose an idea on a functional use until it statisfies its use, that being an automobile. Your client needs a functional working automobile, not an ego trip design that creates a WOW impact...and isnt functional
You are right in stating that "anyone can appreciate form given any background" but they will really appreciate it more when it is most successful in satisfying the need its intended use.
