"The form of an object is a 'diagram of forces', in this sense, at least, that from it we can judge of or deduce the forces that are acting or have acted upon it."− D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson
"Surfaces are not independent of form, but that part of form through which complex exchanges with the environment are vectored."− Michael Weinstock
"For testing forces the model must be made with the same materials and in the same form as the final structure."− Frei Otto
"Nature is a giant laboratory."− Yosef Bar-Cohen
