"he asserts that throughout history all things manmade were asthetically driven somehow"
Obviously your friend hasn't seen a Botali PAMA, or some of the models Tim Hooper builds. The Botali PAMA is just plain ugly with a capital UG, pure function over form. If there was any aesthetic influence, the designer had some very warped ideas of what was appealing to the eye. Not too surprisingly, it appealed to me enough to design a model of one - purely in the name of interest.
