Transcript of Minimalism is defined as the concept of minimizing distracti

Minimalism is defined as the concept of minimizing distractions from what’s truly valuable or essential.

As a result, a minimalist work offers a direct view at – and raises questions about – the true nature of the subject or object.
Less is more.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, a man without any academic architectural
training, was one of the great artist-architect-philosophers of his
age, acclaimed as a genius for his uncompromisingly spare design,
his fastidiousness and innovations.

Alden Whitman

Thank you.
I think that the ideal space
must contain elements of
magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery.
Luis Barragán
Born 13 September 1941, a Japanese architect based out of Osaka, the 1995 recipient of the Pritzker Prize. Highly regarded for his unparalleled work with concrete, sensitive treatment of natural light, and strong engagement with nature.
Born on June 25, 1933 in Matosinhos, Portugal, 1992 recipient of Pritzker Prize.The architecture of Alvaro Siza is a joy to the senses and uplifts the spirit. Each line and curve is placed with skill and sureness.
Like the early Modernists, his shapes, molded by light, have a deceptive simplicity about them; they are honest. They solve design problems directly.
Born in 1902 in Guadalajara, Mexico, 1980 recipient of Pritzker Prize. His professional training was in engineering, architectural skills were self-taught. He has created gardens, plazas, and fountains of haunting beauty, metaphysical landscapes for meditation and companionship.
Died in 1988.
Born in 1946 in Valladolid, Spain. Award-winning Spanish architect, instructor, and writer Alberto Campo Baeza showcases the edifices upon which he has built a reputation as one of the major talents in European design. Covering a range of projects that include houses, schools, governmental, and corporate buildings.
Born on April 26, 1943 in Basel, Switzerland. Recipient of the Pritzker Prize in 2009. His buildings have a commanding presence, yet they prove the power of judicious intervention, showing again that modesty in approach and boldness in overall result are not mutually exclusive.
Born in 1936 in Lebanon, Missouri. In addition to the natural conditions of the site, such as prevailing winds and movement of the sun that are basic to any project, Predock believes in the existing aura of the space, a transcendental power that emanates from the earth. The intensity and attention to Frank Lloyd Wright's details were also important for him.
Born 6 May 1949 in England, highly regarded internationally for his minimalist architecture, studied at the Architectural Association in London but did not complete the lengthy period of study required to qualify as an architect. His exceptional work combines an essential simplicity with a keen attention to the details of everyday life and human experience.

When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature - this very unique to Japan.
Tadao Ando
