Less Is More

To make all of the above happen, we need a guiding principle. That principle is: Less Is More. These words have been attributed to one of the foremost architects and designers of the 20th century, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), the father of the minimalist school. However, Less Is More existed before Mies was born, in Robert Browning's 1855 poem, “Andrea del Sarto”.

Mies directed the influential Bauhaus School of Design in Germany in the 1930s, and then came to the United States, where he designed such sleek, classic structures as the bronze-and-glass Seagram Building in New York City.
