Design involves formulation - the exploration of aesthetic aims through the manipulation of form - and evaluation - the examination of proposals with respect to functional performance. The emergence of theories of general function based on the representation and description of spatial morphology provides for better integration between design and evaluation. More importantly, it brings function within the purview of formulation.
