What is MINIMALIST ARCHITECTURE?
Minimalist architecture, sometimes referred to as ‘minimalism’, involves the use of simple design elements, without ornamentation or decoration. Proponents of minimalism believe that condensing the content and form of a design to its bare essentials, reveals the true ‘essence of architecture’.Common characteristics of minimalist architecture include:
- Proper geometric forms
- Simple, limited and plain materials.
- Neat and straight components.
- Repetition to give a sense of order and unification.
- Simple, open spaces.
- ‘Clean’ lines.
