well anyone who says form follows function must be a beginner in architectural design. however he is right that that you shouldn't focus on the most important. the best way to find out how form is created is to look at other architects. Some great form architects are Greg Lynn with his blob theory, santiago calatrava, frank gehry, steven holl,etc, and also some of the past famous architects. All these people have structured designs that are NOT based on function. Some focus on thematic designs while others use the semantic and symbolic language to create a philosophical design. There is no trick to figuring out form. Just research, research, research. only then will you begin to breach the ideas and thought process of conceptual form design.
