Broto i Comerma, 2003 - Architecture - 253 pages
Minimalism in a architecture is a working method in which aesthetic force and capacity are employed to create an effect that astonishes without the aid of superfluous elements. Its essence can be found in the Mies van der Rohe edict, "less is more," and its intention is to accommodate life simply but beautifully. As Minimalist Spaces demonstrates linearity, texture and uncomplicated structural elements can create new sensations with minimum intervention. It also shows how the masters of minimalist architecture overcome the challenge of fewer possibilities and fewer alternatives which result from the use of fewer elements. World renowned architects featured include John Pawson, Shigeru, Ban, Tadao Ando and Anouska Hempel. Projects range from private residences to large public building, each superbly illustrated in photographs and detailed plans.
