Summary:
Jahn, once a believer in functionalism, says that the functional, programmatic, technical aspects have very little influence on a building's appearance. They "synthesise an approach from abstract geometric forms to historic archetypal forms, to Art Deco, forms that echo the joyful symbolism of early skyscrapers like Chicago's Tribune Tower and Wrigley building."

Abstract:

Jahn, once a believer in functionalism, says that the functional, programmatic, technical aspects have very little influence on a building's appearance. They "synthesise an approach from abstract geometric forms to historic archetypal forms, to Art Deco, forms that echo the joyful symbolism of early skyscrapers like Chicago's Tribune Tower and Wrigley building."
