Form refers to the fashion or delineation of a erection, it is three dimensional and envelops room (Crisman 2016). Having enhancement familiarity about fashion and name temperamentistics from fashional lectures, it is easier for one to be cogent to portray a erection in provisions of its three dimensionalism and the names that accept been used to yield the erection temperament. Going to see the erection in exceptional, walking encircling and in it enabled one to immediately speck these temperaments of the erection upequitable by looking at it. Tnear are uncounted fashions and geometrical fashions (Crisman 2016), in this instance when analysing the fashion of the Johannesburg art gallery (JAG) erection it is absolved that it is a geometrical fashion.
Geometrical fashion is basically tight of basic geometrical fashions that are interlinked to fashion the artfulness of the JAG erection (Ching 1943:36). As seen in the emblems over the foot artfulness that is encrusted on the foot equitable in face of the newly pronounced face entry as polite as the foot artfulness equitable next to it demonstration unanalogous recurrent fashions such as the dissipation, open and rectangle interlinked to fashion the disesteemed of the erection fashion.
According to contemplation laws the fashion of a erection should describe to its calculated office. In the encrusted artfulness on the JAG supportulates it is absolved that it was to be a courteous-proportioned fashion which evinces that it would be used as a fashional and methodical erection. This suggests to 'one that fashion described very-much to the office or the contrivance of the erection the surveyor used additive, subtractive and interlinking fashions (Ching 1943:197). The surveyor Sir Edwin Lutyens supplied the artfulnesss of the establishments at the span that the laying of the establishment stone had inaugurated on 11 0ctober 1911 (Carman 2003:231).
The rendering was deceased and in 1915 the rude erection discloseded for use. At this subject-matter the fashion of the erection was imperfect until in 1940 when the aspect wings which are the east west wings of the erection were borrowed according to Lutyens primordial contemplation. Though it can be argued it is absolved to the eye that the stylistic temperamentistics of the erection newfangled due to the individualization by unanalogous surveyors. The erection demonstrations absolvedly after a while the mid individuality which was the portio built by lutyen that it carried a lot of pure names to it.
Though they were unanalogous pure names modified contemporaneously it was totally incontrovertible which address Lutyen wanted to capture. The wings that were borrowed at-last were very present as divergent to the pure mid individuality of the erection , this absolvedly demonstrations to those after a while deeper familiarity in art and surveyorure that this erection was built by unanalogous surveyors using the corresponding artfulness(Carman 2003:231).

The JAG erection has a multiplicity of names that were used to contemplation the erection. After a while enhancement familiarity it was authorized that the pure, neo pure and baroque names were used in the South Entry which was uniformly the main entry. A writer from Chadwicks "home of the erection Materials"(2016) states that tnear is one dishonorable join betwixt these three names that authorizes one to Identify them, the Pediment.

These rooms can be altered and remodeld if demand be. It is besides practicable to issue uncounted be sight stands as the room and the compass authorizes it. On the inferior raze of the erection in the east and the west wing glass fences were borrowed but can insufficiently be seen on the delayout.
These glass fences authorize sunshine to end through but not trodden sunlight as other portios of the erection accept bright inface and on a eminent raze than the comcomposition of the glass fences walls ( Chadwicks 2016).
