At this moment, I'm sprawled on the couch with 40 ° c of fever, but someone like me never wants to be doing nothing, so I decided to offer you a doubt I have. Let's start from the beginning. Do you remember the ancient Egyptians? there is no doubt that they are an overrated people, since they didn't know how to write or count. However, no one can say that they are not great builders. The pyramids are beautiful, right? And here the problem arises. the pyramids are beautiful, but ... useless! instead, what about the Roman temples, much smaller but on a human scale? and their aqueducts? and their roads, and ships, etc? well. The Egyptians had more beautiful constructions, but those of the Romans were more useful. which of the two was right? is it better pragmatism or design? do you prefer a smartphone with an audio jack, or one without it but much thinner? Do you prefer a beautiful, unconfortable chair, or an ugly, comfortable one? what do you think? it is right to waste resources and sacrifice comfort for design, or ergonomics comes first? In my opinion, architects, designers, and electronics manufacturers should use a good mix of the two!
