Less is More
Designed by the Japanese architecture studio SUPPOSE DESIGN
In minimalist architecture a space is stripped down to its most fundamental features. Less is more. However, these words can have different interpretations. For instance in the commercial world many people choose minimalist architectute simply to have greater control over how to design their space. Thus, "less is more" can have an industrial goal (do more with less) or an esthetic goal (live with less). Sometimes both are true.

Minimalism has a long tradition in the Japanese culture dating back to the Higashiyama culture of the 15th century, when first appeared the notions of Wahi and Sabi, the finding of depth in minimalism. Wahi and Sabi were defined as an active aesthetic appreciation of poverty, Sabi being elegant simplicity and beauty, and Wahi quiet taste.
